This project is a £4.5 billion mixed-use regeneration scheme of Birkenhead Docks in Wirral. At some 1.7 million sq m of development, it is one of the largest regeneration initiatives in the UK, proposing to create over 15,000 new homes and 27,000 new jobs.
Transport: Vectos - an SLR company - has been involved from feasibility stage and masterplanning to the development of a sustainable transport strategy with key stakeholders.
We have also prepared transport assessments to support a series of major planning applications and negotiated them all to successful resolution.
Microsim: Wirral Council and Peel Holdings commissioned us to update the 2008 Wirral Waters Paramics traffic model to a current base year, and to create forecast scenarios for the Tower Road South Civilised Street scheme and the Tower Road and Northbank Development clusters.
The model provided a suitable tool to assess the changes to traffic flow associated with the proposed redevelopment of the dockside area.
