Wisbech Area Transport Study

This study provides evidence on the transport implications of growth for the area in and around Wisbech including the A47.

Bus stops and shelters – positioning

This page provides details of transport and traffic evidence with the most recent study having completed in March 2015. The Wisbech Area Transport Study was completed between 2008 and 2013. It includes the results of the study work in a series of documents and reports.  As part of the study a traffic model was built to test different scales of housing and job growth.  This information provided here about the study is to show how the traffic model was build and also to show the results of the testing.  In order to address the transport issues raised by growth a Wisbech Transport Mitigation Strategy was developed and also tested to ensure issues could be addressed, the results of this work are also listed here.

An explanatory note can be found in the links on the right had side of this page.  This technical note explains the documents that form part of the study and is a helpful guide to working your way through the extensive material that has been produced.

  • WATS Data Collection Report

    This report sets out the data results that were collected on Wisbech transport issues. This data has then been used to built the Wisbech traffic model.

  • WATS Model Validation Report 2009

    This report is to show how the Wisbech traffic model was built. It also sets out details to show how the model is confirmed as being accurate through processes known as calibration and validation.
