This report contains an analysis of the transport emissions and occupancy for the transport network within Manchester. The study aims to identify the differences in travel distance, travel time and CO2 emissions per occupant for different journeys in Manchester using methods in emissions estimation described in the report 12.6.2 Occupancy/Emissions Sustainability Metric Matrix.
A GIS model was compiled with the road and the public transport network of Manchester to identify
1) Routes with the lowest and highest travel time, 2) Routes with the lowest and highest travel distance and 3) Routes with the lowest and highest CO2 emission
1. The difference in A) travel time, B) travel distance and C) CO2 emissions crossing the Manchester District
2. The difference in A) travel time, B) travel distance and C) CO2 emissions from the Manchester City Centre
The methods of the study are: –
1. Comparison of routes through the Manchester District at a 500m interval across South to North and West to East.
2. Comparison of CO2 emission and travel time between private car and public transport for a defined distance (5km) travelling from a given location in the Manchester City Centre, using Manchester Central Library as an example.
