The Department for Transport wishes to commission research on travel demand trends and to develop a modelling tool to forecast these trends. This study will be a further development to research already undertaken internally by the Department which investigated travel trends through an analysis of National Travel Survey (NTS) data. This internal research was conducted into travel trends through analysis of travellers’ trip rates using NTS data for the period 1998 to 2010. In essence the “what” of recent traveller behaviour. This study is expected to further analyse available data sources to identify the drivers of the recent travel trends and determine to what statistical extent these drivers influence travel behaviour. In essence the “why” of recent traveller behaviour. From this statistical determination of the drivers of travel trends, the study should look to develop a forecasting model which can be utilised to forecast travel trends through changes in the drivers identified.

Car Park Queue Prediction

LGSS | Published November 1, 2017  -  Deadline December 1, 2017
cpvs
48200000

The Greater Cambridge Partnership is aiming to ease congestion and prioritise greener and active travel, making it easier for people to travel by bus, rail, cycle or on foot and to improve average journey time (4.87 minutes per mile in the peak hour in 2015 as well as reducing Congestion in peak-time traffic levels in Cambridge by 10-15% based on a 2011 baseline by 2031). One of the ways that modal shift can be achieved is by giving travellers better information which can nudge behavior. Currently it's difficult for travellers to be able to accurately compare the difference in journey times between bus trips through services like the Park and Ride and travel times by car. This is made particularly difficult at busy times when cars can spend a significant amount of time queueing to get into car parks. By being able to accurately predict the time it will take for a driver to get into a car park and thus the amount of time spent queueing we can; • Give a more realistic comparison of public versus non-public transport • Be able to manage routing to car parks better - look to manage queues which can cause delays on roads better • Support other work looking at Air Quality to understand the impact of standing traffic The supplier will conduct a trial for a max period of a year at the Grand Arcade Car Park to create a model which gives accurate predictions of queue times but at a cost that is sustainable in the long term. This information will then be used along with travel time information to give accurate travel time messages on the way into town via VMS screens at a point where drivers can make a choice to use a Park and Ride service instead. It is anticipate that the supplier will need to deploy data collection infrastructure and this would be enabled by the GCP. As part of the project we will look to put in place a robust methodology for measuring the impact that these messages have on behavior in both a quantitative and qualitative way. The project will • address a widely recognized piece of information that is currently missing, and the solution would support wider GCP objectives - • If the pilot at Grand Arcade is successful, it provides a model which can be rolled out to other areas of the city. • It would provide an 'exemplar' of how sensors can be used for public good and a visualisation of the data we hold. This may serve to encourage other similar projects in future.

EM10/2016 Architectural Competition for the Biomedical Campus

The University is seeking to appoint an architect-led team to undertake the master planning of a number of important sites on the Hills Road side of Cambridge Biomedical Campus. It is intended that this master planning study will establish a framework within which the University can subsequently develop world-class accommodation for the School of Clinical Medicine, including teaching, research and administration facilities. It is the aspiration that among the research accommodation will be new facilities for the University's Institute of Public Health and also a state-of-the-art neuro-sciences hub. In formulating principles for development, the masterplan would embrace the following objectives:

— Providing a high-quality environment for researchers, students, patients and visitors, with new amenities and better public realm.

— Improving the arrival experience for staff, patients and visitors, taking into account travel and transport requirements, access and circulation (a number of the sites are at the main entrance to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus from Hills Road).

— Enhance connectivity on the campus generally, and in particular between University activities, though also with an eye to establishing better interfaces between University research on the 1 hand and clinical and commercial activities on Campus on the other.

— Bringing forward sustainable development, with particular emphasis on achieving site energy infrastructure including, where possible, renewable energy technologies, and in the expectation that development at the sites will achieve a minimum rating of BREEAM excellent.

— Optimisation of the development capacity of the identified sites.

The University and the Trust would also like to secure the potential to include within the scope of the study several key Trust sites, also around the front of the Campus. The Trust is currently developing its new clinical strategy, which it expects to publish in September/October 2016, and at that stage will be in a position to decide whether it would like these sites included.

Cambridge needs to grow and there are currently plans for over 33,000 houses to be built over the next fifteen years which will see an additional 50,000 people move into Cambridge and the surrounding area. This growth presents an unprecedented challenge for Cambridge and there is an immediate need to address the pressures this will put on mobility, the Environment, Health and Social Care and the potential impacts on quality of life for residents. Digital technology now underpins almost all aspects of modern living in every sphere across work, travel, leisure and health; and increasingly it impacts on the economic strength, sustainability and quality of life of all parts of the UK and beyond. Emerging “smart cities” technology which is set to have an even greater economic impact in future, builds on this to utilise digital connectivity, sensors and data in innovative ways. This innovation will support: efficient resource management; environmental management, traffic congestion and other city management challenges and help to engage more directly with citizens. On the 4th of Aug 2015 the Smart Cambridge programme became a workstream within the Greater Cambridge City Deal http://www.gccitydeal.co.uk/. One of the first investments the City Deal has agreed to make to support the Smart Cambridge programme is the development of a ‘City Management Platform’ that will deliver two use cases; • a journey planning tool which will have the ability to go over and above the current market leaders (Google, Apple etc.) • a baselining of the current data available within the city and the creation of visualisation and analytics tools to enable policy makers to be able to better use this data.

The County Council’s current Telecommunications Masts Policy dates back to 2002 and take a risk averse position which effectively prohibits the siting of equipment on Council land and property, including schools. However over the last decade there has been an exponential growth of digital technology, which now underpins almost all aspects of modern living in every sphere across work, travel, leisure and health; and increasingly it impacts on the economic strength, sustainability and quality of life of all parts of the UK and beyond. As a consequence the Council would like to review its approach to hosting mobile telecommunication operators’ equipment, with a view to facilitating better coverage across the county and providing an income stream to the authority.

This contract was transferred over to the Local Authority from Health in 2013. The Council extended the contract until 31.3.2016 to ensure the clinical continuity of the Inpatient Detoxification Service. Market research demonstrated that there were no other providers in the market who were able to provide a ‘like for like' service within the financial envelope available. The Councils Inpatient detox service is provided by CPFT and on top of that service has procured 3 inpatient beds solely for drug and alcohol detox purposes. The beds are based on an acute ward at Fulbourn and include clinical oversight by a Consultant Psychiatrist and 24 hour clinical care. The market research was carried out with a variety of detox providers including those providing private ‘out of county' rehabilitation settings confirmed that the current contract provides value for money. Due to the lack of comparable services in Cambridgeshire, we are concerned about transporting acutely unwell individuals outside of the county for detoxification services, due to patient safety, costs and travel arrangements. CPFT demonstrate clinical continuity and have aligned the beds with Addenbrookes and specialist community treatment providers. CPFT work with Inclusion, the Cambridgeshire drug treatment service. An extension of this contract until 31.3.2019 would draw this contract in line with the Adult Drug and Alcohol treatment contracts which both expire on 31.3.2019. This will give the Council the opportunity to re tender these services together. Definition of Service: It must provide 3 inpatient detoxification beds, comprising of: 3 beds at Fulbourn for Cambridgeshire residents, 18 years and over who are in structured treatment with Cambridgeshire Community Treatment Services for either drug or alcohol issues. Aims and Objectives of the Service: It provides planned inpatient care to service users with substance related problems requiring specialist medical, psychiatric and psychological care 24 -7. The aims for service users must be to stabilise or detoxify from substances, (opiates or alcohol), in accordance with national guidelines. The Service must: i. provide specialist assessment either on or prior to admission; j. be staffed by a multidisciplinary team with specialist knowledge of the management of addiction providing safe and effective treatment; k. assess and begin treatment for other mental disorders whilst service users are inpatients; l. offer appropriate symptomatic treatments for withdrawal in line with ‘Drug misuse and dependence, UK guidelines on clinical management' for drug misusing patients; m. offer appropriate symptomatic treatments for withdrawal in line with ‘CG115 Alcohol-use disorders: diagnosis, assessment and management of harmful drinking and alcohol dependence' NICE Guidance for alcohol misusing patients; n. be: — individually tailored, — flexible, — able to make use of a menu of pharmacological and social interventions, — specific to mental and substance-related disorders; o. incorporate procedures that set boundaries on behaviour (e.g. non- prescribed drug use), while enabling service users to be treated in an empathetic and therapeutic manner; p. work with community partners to provide excellent joined-up care for those entering and leaving the service.
