Mission:

In order to carry out the evaluation of the Strategic Plan and the associated land use and their impact on infrastructure network, a multi-mode strategic Land Use Transportation Model (LUTM) is being developed by BFTPI.

Methodology:

The LUTM assignment comprises two main phases:

  1. Phase 1 consistes in adapting, updating and re-designing the outdated traffic model, throughout exhaustive data collection (traffic counts, origin-destination surveys, urban transportation surveys, travel time measurements) providing inputs for the database of the future tool.
  2. Phase 2 consistes in using the Strategic Transportation Model to test the Strategic Plan for 2030 and 2055 time horizons in order to assess the mobility efficiency of the different urban planning scenarios. This second phase also comprises a study on the development of the individual and public transport offer, in order to support a sustainable vision of mobility.

Throughout the LUTM mission, progress meetings are held on a monthly basis in order to assure a good coordination with the UPDA staff.

Furthermore, monthly Technical Working Groups (TWG) are also organised with the Roads Planning & Design Directorate (RPDD) and the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications (MTT) in order to take into consideration inputs and recommendations of the main mobility stakeholders.

Main achievements:

– Creation of a strategic Land Use Transportation Model that will endow the UPDA to align all actors with regards to transport policies.

– Confirmation of the recommendations of the Strategic Plan in terms of land use, mobility schemes and associated policies and measures in order to improve mobility in the Kingdom.
