Leeds Transport Model 2020 Update - Approval to Spend

To approve the expenditure of £0.6M capital funding towards an update to the Leeds Transport Model. This is to cover the first phase (data collection) of a two phase contract. An application for £0.6M WYCA funding for phase 2 (model development) is being progressed in parallel to the contract procurement.


The existing Leeds Transport Model will be five years old in 2020 and beyond that point there are likely to be issues with model compliance because of the age of the underlying data.


It is therefore essential that data collection is undertaken in the spring 2020 survey window prior to the start of major roadworks on the M621 and Leeds Inner Ring Road at Regent Street Bridge and Armley Gyratory. Failure to achieve this survey window would delay surveys until 2024.
