Perth Arena Car Park Access and Milligan Street Modelling

Thursday, 2nd Aug 2012

Transcore recently completed a traffic micro-simulation model for the proposed Perth Arena car park and Milligan Street extension. The Milligan Street extension is an element of the link Project being implemented by the Government of WA. The operation of the Arena car park was assessed during critical peak hours which included a major event at the Arena during Friday afternoon/evening. The operation of the Milligan Street extension is an important issue for the Public Transport Authority because this link will provide the only access route available to the new underground bus station. The simulation modeling was used to investigate the boom gate operation and queue analysis for the car park and the interaction of bus services and cars along Milligan Street and its intersection with Wellington Street.
