Wokingham has a borough-wide transport model that represents average weekday traffic conditions in 2010 during the morning, evening and inter-peak periods. The original model dates from 2005. It was substantially updated in 2011 and further refined during 2012.
The model has the forecast years 2017 and 2026 to represent development and infrastructure provision envisaged by the Local Development Framework, the adopted Core Strategy and the emerging development proposals at Strategic Development Locations in North and South Wokingham, Arborfield Garrison and South of M4.
The model, called the Wokingham Strategic Transport Model, comprises a highway model and a public transport model. It also has a variable demand model.
The base year model has been developed in accordance with the Department for Transport's 'Transport Analysis Guidance and the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges Volume 12.'
