transform transport - issue 1

This publication takes stock of more than 25 years of Systematica’s work. Further to its foundation in 1989 by Fabio Casiroli, Systematica has constantly transformed its way of approaching transport, through constant research, with the sole aim of fostering a better future and reaching higher standards for living conditions. Changes in mobility needs and demand, along with the introduction of new technologies and devices and the mutation of urban contexts, have contributed to deeply transform the multi-faceted issue of transportation. Systematica has often kept up to the pace of said transformations, studying and developing tailor-made and site-specific mobility solutions. In this publication, Systematica’s work is presented through a series of essays on some of its most important projects that are described with an analytical approach and documented in detail, with text, original maps and data. All selected projects are organised by service and type, providing a comprehensive overview on the relevant topics that are contributing to transform transport.

A number of factors, such as population growth, changes in mobility trends and dynamics, socio-economic and sociodemographic transformations, etc, define the urging needs for improving current and future living conditions on the national and regional scales.

use planning, transport planning and traffic engineering principles on the same analytical platform. Master Plans on the national and regional scales are prepared to constitute decision making tools for public and private entities, including cost estimation exercises and financial analysis for assessing feasibility and viability of major infrastructure projects.

What We Do

planning for an overall and comprehensive vision of transportation networks on the national and regional scales continuously proves to be a keystone in infrastructure planning for accommodating future economic growth.

• CIREM Consulting for Sardegna Transport Master Plan, Sardegna, Italy

Transport planning requires a rigorous and methodical planning approach in order to achieve a balanced transportation network and a well-integrated mobility system. Transport Planning on the national and regional scales is underpinned with an in-depth empirical research regarding local characteristics through field surveys in order to establish the mostupdated numerical and quantitative traffic data. Macroeconomic analysis constitutes another key step in the planning process in order to ensure correspondence between general economic indicators and travel demand estimates, which in turn constitute a pivotal component for assessing future traffic conditions and travel needs for passengers and freight.

Furthermore, demand studies are accompanied with travel demand forecast modelling where multiple scenarios are generated, based on the most likely evolution of the current status. In addition, multimodal transport models are used on macro and, where applicable, micro scales for assessing cumulative and partial network performance; this is carried out through state-of-the-art four-step traffic models, developed ad hoc through advanced modelling software to meet the purposes of the project.

Systematica has developed a number of road and transportation Master Plans on national and regional levels in contexts that vary in scale and complexity, in countries with diverse political, socio-demographic and cultural conditions. Said experiences have provided the team with analytical and processing capabilities and techniques that go beyond the mere technical engineering approach, aimed toward a new approach to put regional planning, land 27


Re-Giving Value to Time as a First Step Toward Peace A number of studies aimed to estimate the benefits of peace between Israelis and Palestinians, in terms of GDP per capita, average annual income, however stopped at a few guess-estimates, or some general assumption-based calculations. Through the construction of a solid macroscopic-type gravity multimodal model for the existing transport network in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, peace cost was estimated in terms of saving of one of our most valuable productive needs: Time. The construction of the above modelling and measuring instrument, carried out rigorously by a consortium led by Systematica in an overall duration of 3 years within the framework of the Road and Transportation Master Plan of West Bank and Gaza Strip Project, is unprecedented in terms of empirical detail and comprehensiveness. Said model was constructed for replicating traffic distribution patterns on the current network for the base year, i.e. the current one, through extensive traffic counts, roadside interviews, public transport on and off board interviews. Adequate sample sizes were collected to ensure that a robust modelling platform is obtained. Beside the wide array of output generated, two are worth highlighting: the first is related to the model’s capacity to measure a relationship that today totally lacks; in this case, we refer to a direct link between West Bank and Gaza Strip. Today’s complex modelling instruments are capable of simulating a relationship with a journey cost that is positively infinite. This might have been a useful exercise to do for predicting expected through movements between west and east Berlin in the 80s, and would have perhaps accelerated the wall demolition process a few years backwards! The second output that is worth highlighting is the removal of the road blocks present currently in a permanent fashion, mainly at border crossings and crossing points, and randomly for spot security checks. The uncertainty created by the road blocks (mainly the latter type) has a huge effect on movement desirability, traffic patterns and, most significantly on the value of time. A “Do-Nothing” scenarios, in transport infrastructure terms, was constructed and compared to the base year scenario resulting in huge benefits that the Palestinian citizens can crop if the above-mentioned obstacles are simply removed, or in other terms, by normalizing a totally unacceptable abnormal and controlled situation. Generalized cost saving was estimated to be around €100m annually with a potential increase 28

of 1% of traffic, in addition to natural traffic growth, and a reduction of 11% of time loss on the network. As regards public transportation, an increase of distances travelled by using the public transport system is registered, with a decrease of time on board of around 14%. Research on the value of time in a complex territory, like the one in exam, is ongoing and is considered to represent a crucial element toward bringing back normality to a fragmented territory. Daily impediments had de-valued time and declined uncertainty regarding travel times into a physical problematic related to route choice and eventually, traffic distribution and congestion levels. The value of time might be anchored into very technical aspects, such as income, purchase power, willingness to pay and others; in addition to this, the value of time represents freedom and re-giving time to who is righteous to own it brings back dignity to human kind and eventually would constitute a first step toward peace.

National and Regional Transport Planning


Mapping Malta Within the framework of the National Transport Strategy for Malta 20501, a comprehensive and indepth investigation of transport sector of the Islands of Malta and Gozo is carried out. A set of analytical activities is undertaken, with the aim of developing a full understanding of the existing transport sector, that is deemed to be a complex multi-fold issue, intertwined with both physical and socio-economic variables. The diagnosis of Maltese transportation comprises of the production of a series of unprecedented GISbased detailed maps. For the first time, the provision of Maltese multimodal transport network, in terms of infrastructure and supply, is surveyed and thoroughly analyzed in collaboration with Transport Malta, the responsible local Authority of the sector. More than a hundred maps are produced to show land, air and maritime transport supply infrastructure, revealing several of its main features: road network hierarchy, geometry and maintenance status; road capacity; bridges and tunnels infrastructure; parking facilities provision; engineering devices (traffic lights and speed cameras) provision; public transport infrastructure and facilities supply; main and secondary multi-modal transport hubs; soft mobility supply, and; catchment areas. The survey does not consider Maltese transport merely in its hard components (infrastructure and facilities) but it also includes its soft components, with a focus on the usage that Maltese people and tourists make of the available network as well as to the variegated range of transport network users. Within this framework, census data, informing about demographics and economics, and land-use data are studied and mapped to compose the territorial base of transport infrastructure. Mobility flows are then disaggregated according to user categories and journey purposes and finally main and secondary commuters journey patterns are observed, quantified and localised. The impressive amount of ad hoc produced maps results innovative for two main reasons, ascribable to its two-fold character, both descriptive and analytical. On the one hand, the survey provides local Authority with an original and comprehensive descriptive tool that accurately depicts the state of the art of Maltese transportation, which results have informed the eGis STREETS Project recently published online by Transport Malta. On the other hand, the set of maps represents a strategic and a scientific-based tool of analysis, capable to: unveil the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the Maltese transportation; inform all modelling processes and; address future planning decisions. The National Transport Strategy for Malta 2050 was 32

recently approved and selected by the EU among the portfolio of European Best Practices. The Strategy includes several initiatives for further developments, which proposition is deeply rooted in the findings resulting from the survey campaigns undertaken, anchored into a simple credo: by analysing what you currently see, you can plan for the future.

Urban mobility planning continuously demonstrates to be an unavoidable process to set out a comprehensive and evidencebased policy framework aimed at seeking the sustainable growth of our cities, by ensuring that all citizens are provided with a variety of mobility options, improving safety and security conditions, reducing air and noise pollution and, at the same time, enhancing the attractiveness and quality of the urban built environment and public space. A well-thought planning process comprises multi-dimensional diagnosis of existing mobility supply and demand, vision building, objective and target setting, policy and measure selection, measure appraisal through modelling and financial/ economic assessment, active communication and dissemination, monitoring and evaluation, considering a variety of factors such as affordability, local culture, socio-demographic trends, economic indicators, urban spatial patterns, environmental issues, financing, energy use and potential impacts on specific target groups among which the elderly (in 2050, for the first time in human history, the number of older people will be greater than the number of children under 15 years old). Over the last two decades, Systematica has been developing transport and mobility plans at both urban and metropolitan scales in different international contexts, setting out long-term strategies as well as short-term implementation/ delivery plans, by paying due regard to the in-depth and multi-dimensional analytical reading of: urban environment; overall sustainable cities’ growth; quality, livability and diversity of the urban environment; integration between the urban outskirts and city centres; operational resilience, and, above all; the intertwined relation between land use and transport planning.

To this end, due to urban physical restraints and the urgent need to make a more efficient use of current infrastructural assets and systems, beside the definition of more conventional transport solutions with priority to public transport, walking and cycling investments, a wide and very articulated range of innovative “management measures” is being explored and assessed, to include ITS and ICT solutions, MaaS applications, digital devices to support smart mobility measures, sharing mobility schemes, e-ticketing and smart payment of public transport systems, actuated and on-demand traffic management systems, real time multi-modal info-mobility and customised travel plans.

What We Do

more than 75% of the world’s population is expected to live in cities by 2050 and current urban challenges such as sustainability, efficient use of scarce resources, uncontrolled growth and social exclusion will become much more critical. in this regard, urban mobility planning plays a crucial role in supporting good urbanism through the provision of a multi-modal and efficient response to current and future mobility needs of people and businesses.


Bahrain: When Culture Promotes Sustainable Mobility It is not common to develop a comprehensive mobility plan at city scale for the Authority for Culture and Antiquities: this makes the case of Muharraq a unique one. This historical city was the capital of Bahrain until 1923, and 17 buildings related to the pearling economy were recently included in the UNESCO World Heritage lists. A project of restoration of these buildings is currently underway, as well as the development of a pathway, called Pearling Path that will link historical buildings, squares and other open public spaces.

short description

Muharraq hosts the “Bahrain Pearling Trail” consisting in an ancient pathway connecting the main historical buildings of the town, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2014. This is the first comprehensive Mobility Study for the historical area of Kingdom of Bahrain.

The Pearling Path is approximately 3.4km long, and it crosses a variety of diverse environments, from renovated pedestrian areas, to congested retail streets in the proximity of the vibrant Market Area, to a very narrow urban fabric not accessible by car, to low density residential neighbourhoods. The project has a strong planning and architectural component however it predominantly involves very crucial factors like cultural preservation, increasedtouristic demand and the complex social issue of increasing Muharraq attractiveness for Bahraini families, which have abandoned the city centre in favour of suburban villas. The main challenge to deliver a mobility plan for the Pearling Path implementation is the lack of comprehensive transport master plan or parking plan at city scale. In order to overcome this issue, Systematica developed future long-term scenarios compatible with the Conservation Plan’s goals, assessing how the Pearling Path will contribute to reach those goals.

Muharraq On-street Parking Supply

A detailed GIS database is created in order to collate all relevant collected data into equal and aggregated cells of 150x150m. Data was collected during extensive survey campaigns and comprise mainly of building land uses, current and projected population, on-street and off-street parking demand and parking stock and shortfall. On the basis of the above, parking and mobility strategies were set, underpinning integrated transport policies and actions to be implemented in the short and long terms, alongside the regeneration and development planning vision of the Bahraini Authority of Culture and Antiquities, the project’s major promoter.

Changeable City Shapes The “Changeable City Shapes” is a research on cities conducted by Prof. Fabio Casiroli, the founder of Systematica, passed away in 2015. The research is aimed to explore the different shapes that cities take at different times of the day, influenced by the available modes of transportation and areas reached within a given period of time by private and public transport modes, distinctly. For this reason, Casiroli firmly believed that city shape is not a static element and is continuously subjected to an expansion and shrinking process. Therefore, abstract city shapes, construed as the area covered within any given period by any given transit mode, are influenced by travel times and purposes, as traveling at different times of the day, in different cities with different transit modes result into different city shapes, varying significantly from one city to another. Lessons learnt and conclusions made from Casiroli’s research on the relation between time and city form are numerous and are often rooted into the historical evolution of cities and the degree to which planners and decision makers in different contexts and eras had believed and invested in public and private transit infrastructure in cities, reflecting a long-rooted mobility culture that had characterised and distinguished many cities: northern American, European, far eastern cities and many others. This is shown and proven in the cited research as cities with a long history in investing into Public Transportation such as Tokyo, London and others show totally different forms compared to cities such as Los Angeles and other car dependent cities. Changing forms and their vulnerability are also a result of urban growth patterns, congestion levels and services availability within the same city. This research, among others, shed light on the importance of ensuring coordination between public and private transport and the significant results that could emerge from their unison. Among many others, lessons learnt are again rooted into Casiroli’s approach and philosophy, distinguished by its unconstrained framework of reference and unconditioned precepts, confirmed by Casiroli’s concluding statement while addressing Milan, his most adored hometown: “Different times of the day, different modes of transport, different city shapes. Milan still remains the same, but its functional form changes, never coinciding with its administrative limits. The lesson is: widen your view beyond all borders.”

“Suburbs are the cities that we will leave to our children” Renzo Piano, Architect and Senator of the Italian Republic Over the last decades, the analysis of urban revitalization process has been at the centre of political and more technical debate as a concrete possibility to tackle the urgent issue of urban decline, affecting both the metropolitan scale and single neighbourhoods. From a pure social perspective, one of today’s most critical aspects, which is an evident phenomenon in many worldwide environments, is the result of a large and articulated spectrum of combinations of macro factors and/ or location-specific drivers, with serious implications in all aspects of human life’s: physical, environmental, social, economic, health, historical and cultural. Regarding the pure social perspective, which emerges as one of the most critical aspects to face, often exclusion and marginalization, spatial segregation and the increasing concentration of marginalized groups come together with numbers of other issues, such as increasing unemployment and criminality, decreasing quality of dwellings and public spaces. Urban revitalisation represents an effective multidimensional response to urban decline problem and the related social aspects are drivers for social equity, social inclusion, community building and community cohesion. On August 30th, 2013 Renzo Piano was nominated Senator of the Italian Republic and, from the very onset of his mandate, he decided to embrace a creative and concrete role, by bringing his architectural and urban planning significant experience in his political responsibility and dedicating part of his civil and social commitment to the so-called G124 Think Tank. G124 involves a multi-disciplinary team of experts2 and six young professionals - architects, urban planners and engineers - whose primary aim is developing the future of our cities through an attentive analysis of identified challenges and the proposal for actual requalification projects of Italian urban outskirts, the most fragile territories. So far, G124 has operated in Rome, Turin, Milan, Venice and Catania. The overall approach gravitates around the concept of “urban patching” (“rammendo” in Italian), according to which even small but well-designed urban interventions can heal existing urban “wounds” and, as revitalization “sparks”, trigger wider urban regeneration patterns

and improve the quality of life. To this end, the requalification of urban brownfields and fill-in processes are encouraged to intensify the city by building on the built space and careful attention is paid to the evidencebased linkages between the built environment and urban society, the overall social well-being to include demographic, social and economic processes. With this respect, transport and mobility aspects represented key dimensions to tackle in order to: strengthen the effective connection between suburbs and city; avoid isolation, and; ensure convenient, safe and seamless relations to all citizens, both at local and larger scale. Pedestrian friendly and accessible urban environments encourage social connections and, if designed to be appropriate for communities and people, play a significant role in the construction of social relationships and experiences.

For years, Systematica has been carrying out different feasibility studies of transport infrastructure, assessing the potential of diverse transportation developments at different scales, from national to regional to urban scale, and in different circumstances, from advanced-economy to developingeconomy contexts, dialoguing with a plethora of clients, from public sector at any governance level to private investors, often with different perspectives. The scope of feasibility studies of transport infrastructure has proven to provide clients with quality information for strategic decision making. Although transportation relevance is worldwide acknowledged today, transportation developments, at every scale and in every considered context, are required to be based on effective and sound outcomes, resulting more often from feasibility studies which goal is to determine both the technical viability and the financial profitability of the considered transport development. Feasibility study of transport infrastructure indeed is an analytical tool through which the positive and negative potential hidden in an investment are unveiled and assessed in the most strategic and integrated manner. Viability of transport infrastructure projects is not predictable; on the contrary its assessment involves a number of variables that most of the time are interrelated, such as: environmental conditions, existing transport provision, existing transport demand, expected future travel demand, user group(s) and stakeholder(s) conflict and goals. These variables and many others are considered simultaneously during the development of a feasibility study of transport infrastructure, consisting in turn of the following components: project description and analysis, market feasibility analysis, technical feasibility analysis, financial feasibility analysis, organizational feasibility analysis and alternatives outlining.

Feasibility Study of Transport Infrastructure

The central railway station in Maputo.

Developments in the transport sector in Mozambique has always had a dual agenda: social and economic. While the social agenda has often lagged due to the lack of of investment resources, the country’s poverty level and size, failing to maintain social cohesion demarcated by the civil war in the late 1970s, the economic agenda on the contrary prevailed and justified huge investments mainly in the railway sector to provide inland nations with way outs to the sea. While Mozambique extends along north-south axis, the three freight-dominated railway lines composing the national railway system - Maputo CFM Sul, Beira CFM Centro, Nacala CFM - run from east to west to link Malawi, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe to the Indian Ocean, while serving a very few of the Mozambican major urban

settlements. Mozambican cities are hence not connected to each other and a trip from Maputo to Beira for both goods and people can take place only by car, lasting more than the averagely needed time. The absence of connections between Mozambican cities, where the majority of activities and services are located, entails two main threatening issues: cities’ economy is slowed down by the scarce accessibility and connectivity levels and the process of territorial and social cohesion among the diverse Mozambican Províncias is hindered and negatively affected. Within a general framework of local and international awareness of the importance and potentials of reinforcing the country’s main backbone through rail 47


infrastructure and services, Systematica, as part of a consortium, was awarded by the Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Mozambique and the World Bank Group the public tender for the development of an overall study on existing and potential extensions of Mozambican railway network. The study has no precedent since Mozambique’s independence in 1975, consisting of the following scope: sector scan and opportunities assessment for Lubombo, Lichinga-Pemba and the new North-South Development Corridors, and; pre-feasibility study and business model for the new North-South railway line. The sector scan and opportunities assessments have the main objective to: assess the current situation in the catchment areas of each Development Corridor; identify ongoing and planned anchor projects; clarify main investment opportunities and relative clusters and; set a list of priority projects up to pre-feasibility stage. The pre-feasibility and business models are complementary to the new North-South railway line sector scan and are aimed to estimate existing and future travel demand for preset time scenarios; develop a macro-simulation model of the proposed railway network; propose the most feasible alignment for the new railway line and; verify technical and financial feasibility for the proposed alignment. Systematica developed a portfolio of proposals for the three Development Corridors and a phase-based development for the new N-S Corridor that is defined on the basis of three main assumptions: geographic barycentric position; strategic proximity to the coast and; higher demand fruition of the new railway line. The proposed N-S Corridor runs along a stretch of about 2,500km crossing and servicing all Mozambique, from the richest cities to the most isolated and depressed rural areas. A phase-based development is proposed: in the short-term all three-existing east-west railway lines are connected to each other through the new N-S railway backbone; in the medium-term all existing and planned ports are connected to the new N-S railway backbone, with the so-called “Rail-Port Links”, which implementation is aimed at enhancing the multimodality of the entire transport network envisaged. The so defined N-S Corridor, along with the portfolio of projects proposed for Mozambican Development Corridors is expected to boost economy, by networking the major cities, provided with better levels of accessibility and connectivity, and encourage the process of social cohesion by including and integrating the areas where the weakest social groups live, currently suffering from serious restrictions in mobility.

All mobility and transport services provided by Systematica are supported, where applicable, by economic analysis and, in particular, strategic economic advice to government agencies, transport operators, and other businesses. With this respect, strategic traffic and revenue advisory has always been representing for Systematica a specific field of investigation, with a continuous involvement on a large range of transport projects of toll roads and public transport systems, requiring comprehensive economic appraisal and, more importantly, solid and rigorous travel demand forecasting. Forecasting traffic demand is in fact crucial in transport project financing and PPP schemes as the level of traffic expected to be caught by a new infrastructure/system has a relevant impact on both project costs (Capex and Opex) and project revenues, especially for toll roads where user charges consist of the predominant source of cash flow. However, the accurate and realistic estimation of the future level of traffic is a challenging task that requires comprehensive and multidimensional analyses of both current situation and future trends as well as solid traffic modelling at territorial level. In this respect, Systematica has been consolidating its experience in strategic advisory and due diligence projects by developing rigorous traffic and patronage growth models, based on in-depth investigations of existing framework (population, households, employment, income, active population school enrollment, GDP, etc.), the definition of multiple growth scenarios linked to the variation of a large set of parameters and indicators (annual matrices, value of time, GDP, car ownership, etc.), the definition of balanced fare/tariff strategies,

and, if needed, the execution of articulated surveys (Revealed/ Stated Preference Surveys and other types). As far as traffic and revenue advisory is concerned, strategic transport modelling is an unavoidable assessment tool; within the 4-step process, apart from the baseline calibration/validation step, modal split and multi-class traffic assignments steps have a crucial role in producing reliable outcomes. On this concern, Systematica has been developing state-of-the-art procedures, in particular when defining generalized cost equations (VoT, VoC, user perception factors, etc.), replicating users’ travel demand elasticity and developing sensitivity analysis.

What We Do

the strong linkage between economy and investment represents a fundamental aspect of current approach to mobility and transport consultancy; among different outcomes, a rigorous and well-structured application of economic techniques and instruments helps decision makers to define pricing and incentive systems for transport agencies and operators, assess wider economic impacts and design price-based measures to align travel behavior with policy and regulatory objectives.


Location, Location, Location: a Park and Ride Structure in Mumbai Location is often construed by analysts to be the most influential parameter that determines the success of any real-estate investment. In transport terms, and in order to assess the success and feasibility of a transit-oriented structure, a three-faceted problematic is identified: location, location and location. Systematica had the chance to experiment this further to its appointment for preparing a feasibility study for the Nahur Park-andRide (P&R) structure in the northern suburbs of Greater Mumbai, located in proximity to existing and operative rail and road infrastructure and facilities. The first facet is related to the Project’s location on the globe, conditioned by the specific regulatory and legislative setup in different countries as well as general its socio-economic, GDP per capita, income structures, etc. The second facet is related to the Project’s location in the city; the specific position of the Project and its connectivity to existing transport infrastructure, such as railway lines and stations, highways and main arterial roads, cycling network, etc. is determinant. The third facet, however, is related to users’ purchase power and willingness to pay for the proposed service; therefore, “location” in this last point is construed as the user’s capability and willingness to pay rent (the literal translation of “location” from French). The above referenced study entailed a detailed analysis of rail and road infrastructure network, on the one hand, and of socio-economic conditions in Mumbai, on the other hand. The former was supported by a fullfledged traffic and Origin/Destination survey, conducted previously by the city of Mumbai. A detailed catchment area for reaching the railway stations along the affected lines in the city of Mumbai were equally studied in detail to map the land use and built up area constituents in all areas that are reachable within 15 minutes on foot. The socio-economic facet, on the other hand, was equally compelling and required a detailed analysis of its impact on current mobility trends and dynamics especially as it regards modal share and people’s willingness to leave their car and shift to an alternative environmentally cleaner, cheaper and faster transport mode: the railway. Socio-economics apart, the initial number of vehicle movements reaching destinations lying within a 15-minute radius from stations was significantly high given the high number of commuters that daily visit the 52

city for work, shopping and leisure purposes; the forecast number of potentially interested vehicle-users decreased drastically once socio-economic conditions are taken into due consideration. This decrease is related to the relatively low average annual income in India (compared to the price of oil in the year of study, 2012). The portion of interested users was calculated then based on previous socio-economic studies in which the Value of Time was estimated. Therefore, the study allowed for an appropriate dimensioning of the P&R structure based on the usage expectancy and provided a reliable response on affordable parking tariff rates, constituting an inversely proportionate relationship between parking demand and potential annual income for the parking operator. In conclusion, the project is envisaged to formulate the very first step of a long path that Mumbai’s decision makers can adopt for relieving the city from its current congestion paralyzing problem through the structured implementation of P&R structures. Furthermore, through the achievement of well-designed mixed-use transit Projects, the initiative is expected, on the city scale, to ground-break a shift in travel behavior where journeys are transformed from a single-mode to a multiple mode, and perhaps more interesting, journey.

Among a large variety of investment opportunities, the operation of strategic parking structures in urban areas has been acknowledged over the last decade by the private sector as a highly profitable initiative in the short as well as in the long term. In general, if the parking structure does not require relevant interventions of extraordinary maintenance to be paid upfront as “ramp-up� necessity at the onset of the concession and it is efficiently managed through the provision of smart parking technologies as partially/fully Parking Access and Revenue Control (PARC) systems - for instance with License Plate Recognition systems, the total operational costs could be limited to only 40% of the expected revenues, leaving a significant net profit that can be partially invested for improving further the overall parking experience of users. Each parking facility, linked to specific functions and segments of users - i.e. public parking in city centres, park-and-ride structures, hospitals, airports, shopping malls, stadia, theme parks, etc. - is expected to determine specific patterns of mobility and profiles of utilization which need to be carefully considered and thoroughly evaluated with respect to current context peculiarities and future mobility trends of the city. Thus, once again, demand forecasting represents by far the most crucial and sensitive step of the overall strategic traffic and revenue advisory process aimed at informing the business plan and effectively tackling all elements of potential risk that might occur in the future. First of all, every transport due diligence should provide a comprehensive and multi-dimensional diagnosis of both historical trends as well as current framework through a quantitative and evidence-based investigation of all analytical systems - spatial/land use, socio-demographic, economic and transport/mobility - on the basis of available statistical datasets and urban/transport plans in force, integrated with additional information gathered through ad hoc revealed and stated preference surveys. To this end, careful attention is to be paid to the evaluation of potential competitors, among which other

parking structures and regulation schemes of on-street parking in the vicinity, investment on other modes of transport and significant changes in land use distribution, as part of the risk assessment / sensitivity analysis of the advisory process. Moreover, the definition of solid most-likely future scenarios within the framework set out by policies and strategies of urban transport plans is getting more and more challenging as urban mobility is changing at an unprecedented pace - also in terms of elasticity of the demand - thanks to the introduction of new technologies and smart solutions which reinforce the Mobility As A Service (MaaS) concept and make forecasts on the long run, in particular of expected urban modal shares, a quite complicated exercise. For this reason, market researches and transport duediligence exercises are called to provide and assess an extensive set of potential scenarios, generated by a well-balanced combination of key indicators on future trends and reinforced by a deeper investigation on the most likely impact on parking demand and, in turn, financial performance results of certain crucial elements of change, among which political willingness, economic and demographic trends, parking fare regulations, modal split and transport / mobility policies.

This is conducted with utmost care in order to dimension access systems according to needs, while giving the best value to transport infrastructure investments and expenditure. Systematica’s approach to carrying out TIS / TIA has often been characterized by referencing to multiple international sources of traffic engineering standards handbooks and using the most advanced traffic microscopic and macroscopic simulations and validation tools. Said tools are capable, through complex tailor-developed algorithms, to reconstruct realistically driver behavior and network current and future physical and traffic-management characteristics, including complex system of attributes. This activity often goes hand in hand with the Development Transport Planning exercise, complementing said process with timely feedback on the effects and effectiveness of planning decisions and transport network planning proposals. The structure of a TIS varies in scope and complexity depending on the nature of the considered development, nevertheless every traffic impact study considers all transport modes, including private light motorized vehicles, heavy motorized vehicles (servicing and deliveries), public transportation, taxis, cyclists and pedestrians. Moreover, Systematica utilizes complex territorial analysis instruments for studying the Project’s relationship to its context on a wider scale. This entails the use of GIS platforms for interpolating multiple layers of information, such as catchment areas, resident population and other characteristics that would influence traffic distribution reaching any given

development. In conclusion, beyond the traditional aims of Traffic Impact Studies, Systematica’s approaches this issue not as a problem-solving exercise, however seeks proactively to provide the investors with a planning response that leverages the potentials of the Project context and intricacies.

What We Do

increasing complexity of transport networks and overall effects of traffic phenomena on everyday life, mainly in urban environments, such as congestion, pollution, crowding, etc. have become a challenging problematic for traffic engineers and transportation planners to tackle and solve. the main objectives of the traffic impact study or assessment (tis / tia) are to curb the external effects of any development expected to generate traffic or influence current traffic distribution patterns, ensuring its surrounding network’s capability that accomodates expected traffic loads.


Pescaccio Retail Park Catchment Area Analysis 58


Over dimensioning transport infrastructure is as bad as under dimensioning. Planning the road access system of the largest planned Retail Park proposed by Lend Lease in Pescaccio, Rome, is a good example of this dichotomy. Previously planned and designed over-dimensioned infrastructure had led to negative financial results that rendered the investment unfeasible. Systematica was called at a later stage to propose an alternative solution, peer reviewing the initial proposal and presenting a new Transportation Plan, re-questioning planning principles and demand assumptions. To cut a long story short, the reduction of around €150m of the previous estimate of €250m was achieved and feasibility was proven through scientific evidence. The success of the above achievement can be summarized in two major elements on which the study was pivoted. The first is travel demand estimate. Travel demand is a determinant element in the transport and infrastructure planning process. Said forecasting exercise can be based on existing Trip Generation manuals however can also be tailor-made and based on visitors’ forecasts, availability of alternative transport modes, comparative-cum-empirical analysis of similar structures in the vicinity, etc. Despite the solid base of case-based Trip Generation manuals, they often fail to comprehend and address the case specificity of different projects. Commercial analytical tools are considered to be highly informative, being based on the user population within the Project’s catchment area and are worth being used for transport forecast purposes. The second aspect is related to a culture of transport planning hinged on heavy infrastructure proposals, free flow solutions, etc. This has historically been questioned (and often doubted) by Systematica, primarily for its urban quality concerns that prevail on traffic engineering surgical solutions for a problem that is often unsolved (as it creates others!). The proposed Transport Plan distributed investments on various parts of the network, aimed to leverage the potentials of existing and planned transport connections and avoid additional and independent access infrastructure. The benefit of this “acupuncture approach”, against a surgical one, are dual and represent a certain win-win condition. On the one hand, the upgraded infrastructure is used by city users

during retail off-peak hours, such as the rush hour and often create new connections that would increase route choice options and reduce travel distances. On the other hand, by using and upgrading existing infrastructure the public benefits from the continuous maintenance efforts that the Private sector would be interested in for its own benefits. At times, a few sound principles can make things happen; if those principles are based on doing less, then it is even better for all: network commuters, retail users, the Public Administration and, not least, the Private Investor.

Tehran Opens Up for a Change in Its Planning and Design Culture A few cities in the world represent better than Tehran the ambitions of an entire country. As Iran opens up to become more permeable to international exchange, Tehran gets ready to become one of the major capitals in its region. New airport terminals, rail infrastructure, iconic landmarks and other developments are being planned or are under construction at an unprecedented scale and speed, rapidly changing the city form and dynamics. While the above might seem to be already in vigor for years, Iran is also opening up for new standards in planning approach that the country had not seen in the past decades. As a result of this rapid evolution, mobility demand is steadily increasing, and traffic issues, in turn, are becoming more and more problematic, threatening the very ambitions that drive this progress. Amidst this, Systematica was called and appointed on a number of projects in the recent years ranging from the Pardis Golestan Tejarat tallest tower-to-be in Tehran, to smaller but equally complex projects such as Ava Centre Shopping Mall to the largest Mall-to-be located in the fast-growing District 22, west of Tehran: Iran Mall. Iran Mall is the most challenging project by far, with more than one million square meters (including parking floors) with one of the largest shopping destinations in the region, a convention centre, a luxury hotel, sport and leisure facilities, as well as a high-rise office tower located at the development’s western end. More than 20,000 employees are forecast, with more than 185,000 visitors per day. Said figures require substantial investment in transport infrastructure to connect the nearly 17,000 parking places to the external network. In addition, intelligent traffic management solutions are devised in order to ensure traffic flow distribution on more than 15 under and above ground parking floors and reduce external effects during peak hours. Complex traffic modelling of internal and external vehicle movements validated the proper functioning of parking access and circulation and allowed to quantify the need for technological investments in parking access and control systems. The mobility plan is completed through a set of improvements to alternative collective transport solutions to face principally the movements of employees. Two transportation hubs are proposed inside the project 62

precinct, in order to provide a reliable transport alternative for employees. The location of the hubs takes into account employees’ distribution and walking distances to their destination, while the hubs are dimensioned to ensure a commuting time of less than 20 minutes to the closest metro station, Iran Khodro, located 3km southward. The mobility plan includes precise indications regarding all types of transport, ranging from taxi ranks, GT bus stations, public transport stations, drop off/ pick up and valet system and other system components. Iran Mall is certainly emblematic for Tehran’s aspirations in terms of its planning and design standards and rigorous approach. This project might represent a baby-step in a tedious quest for improving planning and design principles, however it is also an audacious leap toward a new approach in the planning approach that has been missing for some time.

As Tehran grows, mobility demand steadily increases: a change in travel modes can be a great opportunity

i: Tehran is growing at a very fast pace. What are the main mobility challenges that the city is facing and what are the biggest opportunities that you see at the moment?

i: The way people received Tabiat Bridge is the evidence that people in Tehran are thirsty for new pedestrian places. What did you learn from it that can be applied to other public places?

la: I think that traffic is the biggest challenge in Tehran. The city is not designed for pedestrians but for the private cars: pedestrians can rely on a multi-modal transport system but this presents weaknesses. The subway network is efficient in terms of design, but its catchment area is very reduced, if compared with Tehran extension: too many areas of the city are not served and a large part of urban population has to face long distances before getting to a subway station. Additionally, an insufficient number of trains travel along the network and travel demand is only partially satisfied. During peak-hour the experience of subway can be unpleasant, discouraging people to use public transport as their daily means of transportation.

la: There are different reasons on why people received Tabiat Bridge very well. I think the first one is that it is a respectful space for pedestrians, in a city that is mainly designed for cars; even bikes or skateboarders are not allowed to pass on the bridge. This provides a space where pedestrians can feel peaceful without any concerns about other disturbing vehicles. Beside this, Tabiat Bridge pays very close attention to human’s physical and psychological needs, in the way benches, green spaces and handrails are designed. The multilayering sophisticated decks provide numerous ways to experience the Bridge and its several activities for people of different ages, moods and needs. I think these are the issues that can be applied in other public spaces to make them human oriented.

Beside this, the entire city is car-oriented, with neighborhoods disrupted by highways that affect negatively the walkability, and sidewalks that are provisioned with discontinuity and very often occupied by motorbikes. Pedestrians in Tehran feel comfortably hardly ever: people who tend to walk and use public transport are not experiencing good quality spaces in the city. What are the opportunities? I think there is always room to make things better, and I call that the opportunity.

Focus Interview: Shaping Tehran Leila Araghian


Masdar City and Its Mobility Paradigm 10 Years Later Throughout the world, cities are currently facing, to different extents, a variety of global challenges, such as uncontrolled growth, urban degradation, globalization, spatial segregation, energy consumption, social exclusion, environmental impact and several other factors which could potentially lead to the decline of the urban culture in the future of mega-cities. By 2050, more than 75% of population will live in cities, meaning that all these threats will become more and more concentrated inside urban areas. Among these challenges, sustainability and energy consumption represent by far urgent aspects that all urban planning and design disciplines are called to carefully consider through a multi-dimensional and fully-integrated approach. Moreover, the world’s greatest cities are trying to promote more low carbon and climate resilient developments, fully aware of the concrete risks associated to climate change and taking more action on climate adaptation and mitigation. The main objective of the Masdar City, conceived by Foster + Partners almost ten years ago, was to provide residents and city users with the highest quality of life and the lowest environmental footprint. A carbon neutral city, 17km far from Abu Dhabi downtown, of around 45,000 residents and 60,000 workplaces in around 6km2 of plot area entirely reliant on renewable energy. In order to adequately respond to the overall aspiration of the project and support the mobility of the city fulfilling the “carbon neutrality” design principle, Systematica developed an integrated and multi-layered transport and mobility strategy3, including a dense and driverless Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) network, with completely separated right-of-way to provide direct accessibility (less than 200m on an average) and ensure comfortable, efficient and seamless door-to-door trips throughout Masdar Citadel, completely free of privatelyowned vehicles. PRT system was designed to cope with around 46,000 trips in the AM peak period (7.00-9.00) of a typical weekday, ensuring full accessibility to 50% of urban functions in less than 100m, thanks to the delivery of 83 stations and an average waiting time between 2 minutes (50% of trips) and 3 minutes (90% of trips). Although the full implementation plan of the original concept of Masdar City is not yet accomplished and the overall sustainable strategy radically revised, Masdar City can be acknowledged as the first worldwide attempt to deliver a complete zero emission urban development model, which have surely paved the way 66

toward low carbon and, to some extent, climate resilient developments. Today, after 10 years, our cities are becoming more and more intelligent, fully connected and “driverless”. Thanks to the availability of sensors and devices, it is in fact possible to understand and monitor in real time what happens, by treating and analyzing big data for developing new services and planning more efficient and sustainable infrastructures. With this respect and among many smart solutions, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) represent today the most interesting challenge for a radical change on urban mobility patterns in the future. From a city and transport planning perspective, the real interest is not only related to the vehicle itself and the technology that comes with, but it encompasses a larger, urban-scale vision to envisage how future cities can be shaped and which opportunities CAVs could open up setting out the future of sustainability. To this end, a potential strong reduction of the provision of infrastructural capacity (parking and road and junction capacity) thanks to new and more efficient mobility patterns, would have a radical impact on urban morphology, with the possibility to significantly enhance urban public realms and, in turn, quality of life. keyfacts project

An exemplary sustainable mobility strategy is planned in the early stages of the planning and design process. Analysing the territory, considerations of environment and energy related aspects as well as the site-specific social and economic trends are among the most significant factors to consider while planning an effective sustainable mobility strategy. Experience and competence are the basic tools of mobility planning specialists to come up with creative and analytical solutions that can be validated using mathematical modelling tools, simulations and computer software. Professionals involved in mobility consultancy often have an adversarial relationship with the sustainability assessment tools and certification systems. The main concern is how to evaluate the accurate sustainability level of a mobility project?

LEED Neighbourhood Development (LEED ND) is one of the most comprehensive and internationally recognized sustainability assessment methods for evaluation of the projects both in design and completion phase. It has the significant advantage of being very transparent in terms of calculating the points for assessing the overall sustainability level of projects. Based on the total number of points achieved, projects are awarded one of the four levels of Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Calculating the points is through checklists that are available from the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) website, with summary of manuals free to everyone. Therefore, it can be considered as a valuable guideline regardless of desire to get the certificate. LEED evaluates the projects across a broad range of criteria that address the sustainability issues, mobility related (directly or indirectly) criteria affect a significant number of prerequisites and credits (45 points out of 110 available points). The importance and effect of the mobility related decisions and choices on the overall sustainability level of projects and developments is significantly considerable that other tools such as Green Star Australia (Design & As Build) considered to have separate calculator for sustainable transport. In addition, recently developed Estidama Pearl rating system of UAE gives points to different mobility related issues such as public transport, bicycle facilities, parking and travel plan to encourage the modal shift towards public modes of transport. These sustainability assessment tools promote “sprawlproof” strategies,” that bind the developments in already developed areas, providing specific definitions of what should be considered “already developed” (ITACA the Italian rating system considers this issue). They also encourage connectivity, which is an issue addressed also by UN-Habitat by analysing 30 world cities. The ideal neighbourhood is easily accessible with high level of interconnectivity both internal and external. Mass public transit systems, play significant roles in connectivity and increasing sustainability by reducing traffic congestions mainly provoked by private cars, therefore carefully planned system both in quality and quantity of provided services, during peak and off-peak periods is essential. Even the stops and stations location and equipment are important to guarantee the good level of service to commuters. The mobility related issues are limited to the abovementioned point, other important factors are; the design of accessibility systems in urban areas, not only in terms of minimum size, but to find solutions to reduce the critical points (percentage of the distance concerned from driveways) for bicycles and pedestrians, shading

of the paths and proportions of height of the buildings in relation to the road size. It is noteworthy that all the different sustainability assessment tools are encouraging the modal shift towards public and active modes of transport to reduce the CO2 and GHG emissions produced mainly by private cars and promote healthier living conditions. Finally, the truly sustainable future cities and urban areas are not reachable without long-term visions of carefully planned transportation systems through the use of advanced mobility engineering tools.

Systematica acts as a specialist consultant to: verify design effectiveness of parking areas inside complex buildings and independent parking structures; carry out complex parking demand computations for estimating realistically the need for parking places, beyond the strict statutory requirements; model and simulate vehicular and pedestrian traffic inside complex parking structures for highlighting congestion situations and capacity shortfall at entry/exit gates and portals, and; provide detailed indications regarding system dimensioning and shortfalls as well as layout efficiency. Parking structures are studied and designed to meet best international practices and standards, with a special focus on LEED Certifications guidelines. Furthermore, spatial verifications are undertaken to grant adequate safety levels in terms of visibility, especially in parking structures where pillars and similar structural elements obstruct vision and lead to unsafe conditions for both pedestrians and vehicles. Systematica has developed, over the years, an outstanding track record through work on parking areas and structures in very complex environments (high rise buildings, stadia, etc.) with a significant number of parking places and forecast traffic volumes.

What We Do

parking traffic engineering and design is aimed principally to measure the circulation and traffic system performance inside complex parking areas and structures. the success of parking areas has proven to be integral to the success of any development as it contributes significantly to customers’/ users’ experience and satisfaction.

Analysing User Behaviour in Parking Areas as a Key Step for Designing Better Ones Analyzing existing parking areas and structures has proven to carry a great amount of data on mobility dynamics and user behavior that can be only revealed through appropriate survey methods. For this reason, appropriately devised survey methods for informing the forecasting and design process is becoming increasingly important for mapping parking occupancy, traffic distribution patterns, parking places desirability index, on the basis of parking layout and desire lines. User behavior surveys done for the existing surface parking at the Curno shopping centre in the Province of Bergamo (Italy) represents a very good example in terms of method and results. In addition to inbound and outbound traffic counts during the 2 peak hours of the day, a licenseplate survey was carried out for a significant sample size comprising cyclical and periodic registrations of license plates of predefined rows of parking places for recording average duration of stay and parking places choice preference. The survey allows to map the preferred parking places and define a score for each of them, calculated on the basis of the stall occupancy throughout the overall shopping centre opening hours. A GIS-based spatial analysis is then developed, to estimate the coefficient for pedestrian and vehicular distances, through statistical inference. The produced maps combine a wide set of data regarding each single stall into a single analytical framework. Results are often surprising as the symmetric building and parking configurations show asymmetrical behavior, comfort levels and attractiveness scores, often influenced by external factors, such as road connections, adjacent functions, etc. and internal factors related to functional distribution inside the Shopping buildings. Mapping existing complex phenomena can only be detected through advanced static and dynamic surveying and modelling instruments and are significantly informative during the design process. This allows to empirically calibrate assumption factors and indices taken in design exercises, validate modelling results and fine tune design principles through reverse engineering. In conclusion, empirical data extraction and analysis together with modelling and projection platforms act complementarily and reciprocally to feed into one another and enhance analytical and design processes for improving comfort levels, attractiveness of parking places and overall functionality of parking areas. 72

How to Model 9,000 Parking Places in Kuala Lumpur Located in Kuala Lumpur, the KL118 Tower is a 118-storey building comprising a total of more than 400,000 m2 of office, hotel and commercial spaces. The Tower will be the tallest in the country and one of the tallest in the world, exceeding 600m in height, and representing one of the City’s landmarks in less than a decade from now. Systematica was appointed to provide consultancy services on roadway network traffic analysis, parking engineering and pedestrian flow analysis. The Project is considered of high complexity, with more than 15,000 people that are expected to daily transit, live and work in the building; more than 9,000 parking places designated for different land use and facilities are provisioned. A complex forecast model was prepared with the aim of incorporating all mobility dynamics within a single framework, for attaining balance between all transportation modes and all types of users and user groups. Consultancy went hand-in-hand with different trades and design disciplines where output was directly incorporated mainly in parking floors and areas where high traffic volumes are expected such as the MRT connections and tower lobby.

What we do

walking is undoubtedly the fastest and most convenient mode of transport for short-distance trips at urban scale and inside mixed-use complex buildings. a sound and reliable transport planning shall therefore include pedestrians and consider them among the most important actors who define, with their occasional and systematic movements, the multi-fold pattern of mobility flow.

Systematica has been considering pedestrian mobility in a number of recent and past projects, assessing and modelling existing and expected pedestrian flows. For this purpose, Systematica utilises pedestrian simulation codes, for all types of pedestrian flow analytical studies in critical environments, with a significant pedestrian flow peak load and complexity, such as transport nodes, high-rise buildings, masses of people gathering in events like sport matches, fair exhibitions, and world expositions (EXPO). Pedestrian simulation codes present ‘intelligent’ decision-making agents which reproduce the pedestrians’ thinking and movement patterns, with accurate replications of physical configuration of spaces that include also elements such as escalators, stairs, and elevators. Changes in the number of people, that may occur according to the considered time interval, or types of people, that may vary according to the considered project, as well as changes in infrastructure can all be modeled and subjected to intense analysis.

In particular, Systematica has been making extensive use of the most advanced available pedestrian simulation tools, widely used in the transport engineering domain. The main objective of the pedestrian flow analysis is to foresee and assess project characteristics and design specificities measured according to both physical and psychological parametres. Spatial capacity and project performance can be hence measured and all critical aspects can be approached and resolved with appropriate corrective and mitigation measures; the results of simulations can be analysed graphically through 3D animations, colour coded performance maps, statistical reports and graphs, all of which are excellent for sharing results with a technical and non-technical audience.

Making Walking Pleasant (Even in Dubai!)

Facade value ■ = lower ■ = low ■ = average ■ = high ■ = higher

Walking in Dubai is certainly not the primary transport mode, however the efforts done in the last couple of years show that there is room for great improvements. Although Dubai is a city designed for cars, major investments in public transport are now opening the possibility for a more pedestrian-oriented public realm. At planning level, a dense road network with great routes choice encourages pedestrian movements, as shorter and direct travels are possible between most of the functions. Systematica’s involvement in Jumeirah Central Development (formerly Mall of the World) for a duration of 18 months, the visionary project which sought to weave its public realm into a dense pedestrian network, had proven, on paper so far, that grid patterns and road configurations, mixed land use, investment in public transportation and innovative climate controlling could be a keystone in delivering a walkable city, even in Dubai. Throughout the process, planning efforts were concentrated on developing appropriate block sizes, mid-block connections, functional distribution, retailactivated ground floor and several other factors that are expected to contribute to the success of the walkable city. Different land use mixes were tested for generating a high number of internal trips, achieving around 8-12% of total movements. Together with the developed public transport network that reaches a PTAL 5 on average, around 60,000 pedestrian movements are expected during a single peak hour. Beyond said planning efforts, the pedestrian network was engineered with a dual objective: to ensure 76

pedestrian mobility in both winter and summer and at every hour of the day. Movements were fully modelled in order to validate planning decisions and ensure maximum network flexibility and attractiveness, where for instance, a winter-to-summer path detour (due to climatic change) does not exceed 50m. While movement during winter time (good weather) is determined by natural desire lines, preconfigured and intelligently distributed climate-controlled paths in summer are planned to ensure comfort at all possible paths whereas the distance between climatecontrolled and non-climate controlled paths do not exceed 20 to 40 meters, a threshold that results from in-depth studies for identifying the human body’s limit to maintain its comfort conditions before falling into discomfort again further to a change in external temperature. Efforts made for making walking in this 2km2 development in Dubai pleasant are numerous, achieved without an increase in investment cost. This effort on the contrary required an overall review of the BAU planning approach and mindset which defined the local planning norms in the past decades, often steered by the need to meet delivery deadlines. For the first time, Jumeirah Central developers have decided to put “time off the table”, quoting Tim Magill (Design Principal, 5+Design), and focus on showing Dubai something unprecedented with a modest effort to undo some of the planning flaws and to design a city for its users and not their cars. keyfacts project

Moving in the Greatest Gathering of the World Planning and design of a new development in the holy city of Mecca has no equal in the world from all perspectives, and, in particular, from both cultural and social standpoints. In that sense, Thakher City is a memorable and unique new residential and hospitality-based development, which most relevant peculiarities consist in symbolic and religious aspects related to the greatest human gathering in the world, climate conditions and the highly variable functioning of the whole city. This new urban district is located in the city centre of Mecca, around 2 km north of the main Mosque al Masjid al Haram and it is designed to provide enough capacity - around 2m m2 of GFA - to accommodate up to 250,000 pilgrims during the Hajj, the main Islamic pilgrimage that takes place every year in Mecca, involving more than 2.5m piligrims who arrive and leave in one week. Hajj is literally a once-in-a-lifetime experience, which fixed ritual requires pilgrims to move between four main sites - al Masjid al Haram, Mina, Arafat, Muzdalifah - at given days and following a precise schedule, making transport planning a very demanding and definitely fascinating exercise which requires attention to safety issues through effective and integrated crowd management strategies. On the one hand, the Hajj’s rituals imply a tremendous effect on transport infrastructures, while, on the other hand, they determine a “predetermined” pattern of induced mobility and make the related impact more predictable. With this regard, transport-related aspects of the Thakher City definitively represent a challenging keyfacts project

Thakher City is an urban development (2,000,000m2) a few kilometers away from Ka’aba Mosque. The development is mainly related to Hajj and the design needs to cope with the important amount of expected pilgrims (200,000-250,000) and with uncommon mobility patterns. Vertical Transportation appraisal plays a crucial role within the comprehensive strategy envisaged by Systematica.

dimension to tackle through a robust, multi-layered and integrated mobility strategy, aimed at providing adequate capacity and functionality to future needs, in order to deliver a massive urban intervention with the lowest impact on surroundings and, in the meantime, creating a high quality urban environment by paying due regard to city-streetscape elements. Due to the peculiarity of the pilgrimage patterns and the limited distance between the site and al Masjid al Haram, walking is by far the predominant mode of transport with peaks of 120,000 hourly movements. As part of the pedestrian accessibility strategy, the provision of a public vertical transportation hub represents a pioneering intervention aimed at seamlessly negotiating the substantial change in elevation - around 80m - from the city level to the upper portion of the site: the planned Gateway Building is in fact an unprecedented marriage between architecture and infrastructure, integrating 54 high-capacity, double-deck elevators, a sort of vertical mass rapid transit system, to smoothly move more than 90,000 pilgrims in one hour. An effective and safe management of hundreds of thousands of first-time visitors coming from all over the world also needs to gravitate around an effective

and solid wayfinding strategy. The distinctive geometric language of the pedestrian network is, in fact, complemented by a clearly defined composition of neighborhoods that differentiate zones within the Master Plan, supporting pilgrims to easily orient themselves; moreover, the subdivision of Thakher City into seven districts is not accidental as the number 7 is very recurring and meaningful in the Islamic culture. Neighbourhoods are defined holistically, using architectural accent colours, landscaping palette, and geometric patterning in hardscaping, as well as traditional elements such as strategic signage, to reinforce wayfinding messages in the most broadly accessible and comprehensible way. Moreover, a proper wayfinding system looks at streets and districts as interrelated elements, weaved to facilitate the experience of space and simplify its visual representation.

Mobility is in fact a critical component of the overall visitor experience when attending a major event, and expectations are getting even higher. As specific service of the transport planning and engineering industry, it represents by far one of the most challenging and rapidly evolving field. In particular with respect to the following several needs: developing solid multi-scaled analysis and reliable mobility demand forecasting, based on Revealed/ Stated Preference Surveys’ outcomes; assessing cost-effective and wellbalanced measures and interventions, able to justify investments for temporary uses; managing, in a comfortable and safe way, the movement of hundreds of thousands of visitors in a given space, with an eye on heritage and all relevant legacy-related issues. In order to adequately manage mobility issues of big events, the main goal is to achieve, a balanced and sustainable modal shift, through the provision of an integrated transport system, and ensure safe accessibility for pedestrians. The latter can be obtained through the implementation of certain measures, among which: the potential reinforcement of specific public transport services; the provision of temporary remote and local parking lots served by bus shuttles, and; the enforcement of traffic-restricted areas around the site. Getting into the more local scale and the actual management of the site, within the multi-faceted planning process of big events, the definition and design of efficient crowd management solutions represents a keystone around which all other strategies gravitate, including operational security plans, evacuation plans, healthcare management plans and wayfinding schemes. From an analytical perspective, crowd management is mainly based on the comprehensive insight of behavioral dynamics of people’s movements through evidence-based analysis and pedestrian modelling.

Over the last decade Systematica has been developing crowd management projects starting from its valuable and well-round experience on pedestrian modelling and transport planning at any scale of analysis, with the primary aim to improve efficiency, safety, security, visitor experience and profitability of the asset, through enhanced management, design and operation. To this end, Systematica developed a wide range of activities for big events, to include master planning, operational advice, detailed analysis, crowd risk assessment, evacuation analysis, dynamic simulations and design support at any level. By achieving a firm understanding of crowds’ usage of space in relation to the distribution of services and attraction points, the configuration of the pedestrian environment and the provision of information, with wayfinding strategies and signage, Systematica effectively informs the development of design by assessing the actual capacity of each component and the performance of alternative design layouts, dwell times and circulation patterns to maximize the potential throughput. In doing this, Systematica always pays due regard to the need to make “first time” visitors fully aware of all available transport alternative modes, ensuring easy of movements, through a well-designed and people-centered, smart and real-time info-mobility systems, innovative booking and payment schemes as well as efficient wayfinding systems.

Although transport did not represent the main theme of the EXPO 2015, particular attention was paid to visitorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mobility, and all multi-dimensional related aspects, among which walking as a focal field of investigation, steered the design of the site in order to accommodate and move smoothly the expected visitors. Mobility planning of EXPO 2015 is called to work at every scale of analysis, complemented with a robust and strong knowledge of crowd management strategies (also with respect to evacuation and emergency situations) and advanced modelling.

Crowd Management and Mobility Planning of Major Events

Apart from being a new successful project and having had an incredible international media resonance, able to reserve a place for this small jewel nestled in the Italian Alps into the tourist world maps of top-placesto-see, the event marked the origin and the application of an innovative major event planning and crowdmanagement model, able to cope with hundreds of thousands of visitors without incidents and injures, within a very short and concentrated timeframe.

Flexibility, constant monitoring and adaptability are the strengths of The Floating Piers mobility strategic plan

Within a very flexible and well-integrated management configuration, Christo and his organisation were put at the centre of the articulated operational machine, with a Central Operational Unit (COU) of more than 100 people monitoring 24 hours. All interrelated management aspects - safety, information, healthcare, weather forecast, etc. of the event were tackled with real time and coordinated responses, thanks to a strict and effective collaboration among the organization itself, all public institutions, police forces and voluntary work associations involved. However, behind the success of this new operational approach, stands an avoidable and multifaceted exercise of planning and definition of strategies to cover all well-round dimensions among which, accessibility and mobility represent one of the most sensitive and crucial aspects to set out. With this respect, the main points of strength of the mobility strategic plan6 adopted to support the mobility of The Floating Piers visitors were flexibility, constant monitoring, and adaptability. As first key issue, due to the necessity to ensure an adequate level of comfort and safety, the overall plan was centered around the definition of the maximum pedestrian capacity of walkaway (10,000 people) that, in turn, apart for guiding the safety and evacuation strategies, determined the maximum inbound/ outbound capacity of all mobility systems provided at territorial scale (50,000-60,000 one-way movements per day): railways, roads, ferries as well as soft mobility modes. Due to the articulated orographic configuration of the area, implying significant limits to the overall capacity and flexibility of transport systems, the necessity to optimize all available mobility assets, able to provide strategic accessibility to the site, represented the focal objective. To this end, one of the most strategic aims of the plan was to achieve a balanced and sustainable modal shift through the provision of an integrated transport system. On this concern, the regional and local rail services along the lake were strengthened, an articulated system of temporary remote and more local parking systems, served by bus shuttles, was devised and a wide traffic-restricted area around the site was in force to reduce traffic pressure, protect pedestrian movements and guarantee effective connections with the parking lots.

Vertical Transportation Appraisal


What We Do

vertical transportation plays a key-role in high-rise buildings’ functionality and success, the reason for which vertical transport study cannot be excluded from the multifaceted planning and design processes of every type of highrise and complex buildings, including retail, commercial, residential, hotels, hospitals, transport terminals and mixed-use developments.

selected projects

• HRDF Tower, Riyadh, KSA • Iran Mall Office Tower West Expansion, Tehran, Iran (image ©NORR)

Properly designed vertical transport systems help creating attractive, successful and safe buildings, hence improving the experience and comfort of building users. From the investors’ point of view, vertical transport study appears even more fundamental since the efficiency and functionality of a building’s vertical transport system (elevators, escalators, etc.) can impact significantly the building’s profitability. Moreover, investors should ensure that vertical transport system responds adequately to user demand, providing desired levels of service.

• Køge High Speed Station, Køge, Denmark • Kotelniki Shopping Centre, Moscow, Russia • Riyadh Security Forces Medical Centre, Riyadh, KSA • Salaryevo Shopping Centre, Moscow, Russia

Systematica is specialised in vertical transportation and has been growing fast in this domain thanks to its involvement in several complex high-rise building projects, located around the globe: Malaysia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia, France, Italy and others. Elevators and escalators efficiency, and performance, waiting times, comfort conditions and other factors constitute the study’s main goal. Systematica’s vertical transport studies are carried out in full collaboration with architects and developers in order to inform, since the very start, the design process with scientifically-based outcomes, that result from static analyses and dynamic modelling activities and take into consideration a series of variables, among which client requirements, occupancy level of services, lobby spatial layouts, elevator capacity, and waiting times. Finally, vertical transport studies developed by Systematica are also aimed at maximising the net lettable area (NLA) in high-rise buildings, without compromising the vertical transport system efficiency, and always ensuring high level of services.

Vertical Transportation: an Integral Building Mobility Component

VT studies in high rise buildings are decisive for both quality of experience and building efficiency

A detailed analysis of pedestrian circulation in complex buildings needs to integrate the Vertical Transportation (VT) component. For this purpose, Systematica has recently focused on VT, exploring further state-ofart analytical references and handbooks, available technologies and complex micro-simulation software. Research is complemented through actual applications on a number of projects involving the design of both public and private VT systems, including escalators, travelators and elevators tailoring design to various project typologies and to different user behaviors and needs. A good example of the recently developed VT appointment is Iran Mall Office Tower. Iran Mall Office Tower is a 45-storey building located atop Iran Mall’s western expansion. The tower is a 285m tall building (lobby to roof terrace) designed to become a prime location for local and international companies’ headquarters. The lowest parking floor is 57.5m below the main lobby, hence the maximum elevation gap to be covered by elevators is 342.5m. The design of VT system for the tower requires a detailed analysis for defining the best proposal and to cope with the very high performance level required by the client. With the aim to rationalise the design proposal, the entire tower is programmatically organised into 5 different sections, each one is directly connected to the main lobby: parking, low-rise, mid-rise, high-rise, and VIP.

As a first step, the total building population is estimated and standard arrival profiles are identified based on the type of use for identifying the peak hour and hourly demand. Once demand is estimated, simulations are run through a specialist software which provides detailed output on queue lengths, waiting times and time to destination of every single elevator and elevator group with the ultimate aim of calculating the number of required elevators and their optimal configuration and characteristics. This information allows for a better understanding of system performance and potential criticalities, ensuring a scientific basis for further comparisons among different VT solutions and demand scenarios and unexpected surges.

Systematica approaches this activity from its planning point of view, through the use of complex spatial analysis tools, in order to measure the impacts of wayfinding configuration on movement patterns and to strategise wayfinding planning to improve mobility conditions and render circulation networks more efficient and fluid. All graphical aspects instead are developed by graphic design and signage specialist consultants, whereas the entire process is steered and managed by Systematica. Furthermore, complex spatial analysis tools are used for analysing the spatial asset of architectural configurations and large master plans, steering spatial planning during the architectural design phase and assisting signage specialists in deciding on the most efficient positioning of signs. This entails also spatial readings such as visibility, integration (connectivity), step depth analysis (number of turns required to reach a certain destination), etc. This type of analysis allows to provide a scientific basis for both wayfinding strategy setting, mainly in terms of routing pedestrian movements, space allocation and designation, etc., and proper signage configuration.

What We Do

navigating easily through complex buildings contributes significantly to building experience and ensures an efficient mobility and circulation network, very often leading to better traffic load distribution.

• Thakher City Master Plan, Mecca, KSA

This activity is also aimed to improve connectivity among internal building zones and to improve spatial intuitiveness for leaving and reaching again any given destination, manifested mainly in complex parking structures of shopping centres, airports, stadiums, etc. Systematica manages and steers the wayfinding and signage project development process from its early concept phase till construction and post-construction phases.

93


Wayfinding: Before Signage Traditional traffic engineering practice describes pedestrian movements in a very similar way to vehicle trips, where users should move through a network of links and nodes, opting for the shortest travel distances and lowest journey costs. For pedestrian movements, this is not merely true, as the configuration of space plays a crucial role in determining people’s route choice. By understanding, for example, how visible and well connected is any given room in a building or a square in a neighbourhood, it is possible to predict path choice tendencies and, in turn, expected traffic volumes. Spatial analysis of this kind has been extensively used in the recent years and in different contexts, from retail destinations like Galerie Lafayette in Paris, to cultural institutions like Jameel Art Centre in Dubai, to transit hubcum-shopping centres such as Kotelniki and Salaryevo in Moscow. The role of spatial analysis is even more crucial in wayfinding projects, where visibility and routes choice is decisive. The MyTown shopping mall, currently under construction in Kuala Lumpur, is a good example of how Systematica, appointed both for wayfinding planning and design, has based the entire strategy on a robust analytical work of building configuration. At an early Concept Design stage, the wayfinding system was used as a tool to leverage some of the building’s spatial potentials while ensuring seamless navigation in areas that are less visible and accessible. In the Detail Design phase, spatial analysis was used to identify the exact location and content of each sign: directional signs are located on the main decision making points on main routes, information and utilities signs in the most visible areas, while mall directories in places where users have a clear perception of space. This scientific approach allowed to identify the minimum number of signs required to provide a user friendly, efficient and effective wayfinding system, with the great advantage of reducing construction costs and visual pollution.

How to deliver a complete set of transport strategies for a complex megacity like Moscow? First of all, it has to be flexible. There are no solutions that can be effectively implemented in all contexts, however, similar strategies can be proposed in places with similar characteristics. A systematic classification is therefore the first step to tackle the issue at such a vast scale. An innovative analytical methodology was implemented by Systematica within the framework of the awarded consortium for the Moscow River Competition, where the Municipality ambitiously requested a single planning proposal on a stretch of 200km along river embankments. 97

Wayfinding Planning and Spatial Analysis

Minor Interventions for the Largest Metropolis in Europe: Moscow


Two key-transport qualities are detailed for the entire city: connectivity of the road network and public transport accessibility. Connectivity indicates to what extent one route is interrelated to the rest of the road network. Empirical studies demonstrate that routes with higher connectivity degree are those with the highest recorded number of trips and passages. This implies high traffic flows on main connections at urban scale and consequently vibrant pedestrian activities along said routes. Public Transportation Accessibility Level (PTAL) is a scientific way of measuring varying densities of public transport services and infrastructure, by mapping the entire urban framework on the basis of the pedestrian distance of any point to public transport stations and stops, as well as the number, frequency and reliability of public transport services. The relation of these two spatial qualities allows to recreate the full spectrum of possible transport and traffic conditions, from areas with excellent degree of accessibility, both with public transport or private car, to the most inaccessible places, including all combinations in between. Following this methodology, the areas along the River Moskva, currently undergoing major interventions, are grouped into four main categories, allowing to propose typical interventions for each of them: new metro and bus lines are planned for the area with poorer level of accessibility, while cycle lanes and bike sharing points are proposed in areas that are already well connected to the mass transit network. Obviously, this allows to identify strategic measures at high level, whereas implementation plans to be developed, case by case and in detail, at a later stage. Right: Moscow PTAL Map

Les diagrammes de flux permettent la visualisation de la répartition du volume de trafic sur le réseau. Comme montré dans le diagramme de flux de véhicules à droite, Pont de Neuilly et RD7 sont exposés à un plus grand volume de trafic dans la période du matin. Les volumes élevés ne sont pas des indicateurs du niveau de congestion puisque le réseau routier est divisé en différentes hiérarchies de route correspondant à la capacité différente des routes, c’est-à-dire largeur variable de la route et du nombre de voies.

Retail and Shopping Centres Shopping Centres represent de facto new urban polarities where people not only shop, but also meet, spend time eating or watching a movie, look for basic services like car-rental or post offices. The complexity of these systems requires therefore detailed vehicular and pedestrian studies.

ss36 road feasibility study, prepared for anas, 2016 A significant amount of traffic data is required to set up reliable traffic simulations, especially in case of national, regional or urban mobility plans. Systematica often devices and undertakes large survey campaigns to count vehicles at peak hours or throughout the whole day. To have accurate results, Systematica combines traffic campaigns with digital cameras and state-of-theart software technologies to count vehicles for multiple consecutive hours, or days. It is, in fact, possible, to have automatic counts that takes into account different users typologies, from trucks, to cars, down to motorbikes and even pedestrians.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;aree ex falck sesto san giovanniâ&#x20AC;? master plan, prepared for rpbw, 2010 S-Paramics has been selected to simulate road traffic conditions for the Aree Ex-Falk Master Plan, designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The software simulates the individual components of traffic flow and congestion, and presents its output as a real-time visual display (both two and three-dimensional) for traffic management and road network design. From a simple road network description, a complete and detailed traffic model can be implemented considering features such as bus operations and traffic signal settings, driver behavioural characteristics and vehicle kinematics.

expo 2015, milan, italy Legion SpaceWorks is based on results of many years of research conducted on human behaviour, the software enables sophisticated simulations to be applied to the design process. It offers an innovative method intended to improve structures characterised by the simultaneous presence of large numbers of people. Systematica therefore selected this software to perform all pedestrian dynamic simulation for Expo 2015, where more than contemporary presence of 180,000 visitors have been tested. The use of Legion allowed to identify possible criticalities, anticipating solutions at very early design stages.

road & transportation master plan of west bank and gaza strip, palestine, 2016 Cube has been used as main analytical software of all master plan scenarios defined in the Road & Transportation Master Plan of West Bank and Gaza Strip, submitted in 2016. With Cube it is, in fact, possible evaluate public transit alternatives, road pricing strategies, land use developments, freight terminal locations, updated signal plans, and alternative geometric designs. Dedicated software training sessions have been organised throughout the process to provide the local technical staff the appropriate knowhow for developing and updating the master plan.
