Wales & Borders Concession Bid Timetable Design

Timetable planning and performance modelling for a concession bid

Although it is not the busiest part of the UK network in absolute terms, the Wales&Borders timetable presents a number of difficulties due to the combination of single track lines, multiple-unit working and block systems. During the franchise bid, trenolab was asked by one of the competitors to support the development of timetables and test them using stochastic simulation.

Our tasks:

  • Operations analysis
  • Timetable refinement
  • Microscopic simulation model development
  • Microscopic simulation model calibration
  • Microscopic stochastic simulation
  • 2017/02 - 2017/12
  • UK
  • MTR Europe Ltd
  • Concession Bids
