II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

TfW is responsible for procuring a suite of regional multi-modal transport models and tools to cover the whole of Wales and adjacent areas in England which have a material impact on transport in Wales. Consistency of approach and model output across Wales will be an important consideration. This procurement event was specifically for the South West and Mid Wales area only.

1) The SW&Mid Wales Transport Model (SWMWTM) will need to be multi-modal and capable of modelling the following types of transport intervention from the outset:

A. Metro service for the Swansea Bay City Region, including options for LRT, BRT, new stations/stops, and rail-based Park and Ride;

B. Heavy rail improvements, including new stations, new lines and amended services;

C. Major bus improvements, including significant bus priority, area-wide or corridor bus quality improvements, and area-wide or corridor integrated ticketing and wholescale fare changes;

D. Major highway infrastructure changes, including new highway construction, major junction alterations, and road closures;

E. Area-wide parking strategies, including wholescale changes to parking availability and charging levels;

F. Area-wide highway charging strategies, such as in relation to clean air zones;

G. Area-wide or corridor active travel schemes to reduce private car use.

2) The SWMWTM will need to be technically sound and capable of withstanding scrutiny. This means aligning the model with UK government guidance, as set out in WebTAG. Critically, the SWMWTM will need to be understandable and user-friendly, with fast model run times, so that its use by stakeholders can be encouraged;

3) This ITT was for a term contract of approximately 3 years ending March 2022, to develop the SWMWTM and subsequently maintain, update and operate the model. TfW expects the model to be completely ready for use from 1.10.2020 and the consultant will then be responsible for maintaining, updating and operating the model.
