Polish bottleneck

Oscar Faber is helping evaluate proposals to update the existing tram system in the Polish city of Krakow, and - like the UK - entice local people out of their cars.

Along with Price Waterhouse and Hyder the engineer is developing and evaluating the proposed improvements which are seeking EBRD loans.

These involve a new north-south 'fast' tram route of around 14km, partly on a new alignment and partly on existing routes. The major objective is to improve access to the existing main bus and rail stations, now at the centre of a major new commercial development.

Oscar Faber built a multi-modal computer model to forecast the effects of transfer from the old to the new tram system based on data from interviews with passengers and trip patterns.
