ABV Development carries out your mobility studies and studies the impact of your projects on local traffic. But far from just producing figures and statistics, ABV presents simulations and models your project flows through software!
Before explaining the benefits of road simulation, let’s have a look at the mobility study.
ABV Development is involved at the early stages of real estate and commercial (or even industrial) projects to review and integrate the “mobility” component (as well as the accessibility and parking components) by putting our expertise at the service of our private or public clients. Our mobility studies allow us to define, design and justify the projects carried out by our clients.
Why model impacts?
The road simulation is a decision-making tool and complements the results obtained in the mobility study.
For example, the models show the length of queues and the average waiting time for users at a crossroads or roundabout.
The modelling also shows the interactions between different traffic flows and therefore highlights some potential traffic problems.
How does it work in practice?
The first step is to use our software to demarcate your project area on a modelled map by integrating roads, traffic lights, stop signs etc., thus making the modelling fully consistent with the reality on the ground. The traffic data collected during the mobility study (in the current and projected situation) is then integrated. As the purpose of the modelling is to simulate traffic and queues, only rush hour data is used.
The software then models the vehicles generated by your project and allows you to observe their behaviour at strategic or problematic locations in terms of traffic (crossroads, roundabouts, etc.). An appropriate key is applied to the modelling, visually marking any difficulties encountered (lane jumping, crossroads congestion, etc.).
This modelling leads, where applicable, to possible adjustments or changes to the public or private area (geometry of roads, roundabouts, crossroads, etc.).
The objective is to enable your project to be integrated and adapted in a balanced and sustainable way in a specific local mobility context. Your project must be a success!
A knot of weeds in the land of the rising sun? Yes, that’s essentially what Japanese knotweed is! So what is it and what do you do if it’s growing on your land? You’ll find a detailed explanation here.
Belgian industries are strongly affected by the health and economic crisis that we are going through. To cope, they must reduce their costs. In this context, ABV Development supports them to decrease their tax burden, by optimizing the tax base, by highli
