Sadly, we don't seem to have had a reply to our previous email..
Never mind —a polite response would have been nice.
We have a few of questions for our ongoing coverage. While you can opt out of answering them, it will save time compared to filing FOI requests, and give you an opportunity for you to present your arguments.
- What is a transport hub and how is it different from a normal car park?
- If it is because it has secure staff cycle parking, do the existing BRI and St Michael's hill staff car parks qualify for the title "transport hub"?
- If not: why not?
- Across the entire UBHT Kingsdown Campus of BRI and St Michael's Hill hospitals, what is the total number of parking spaces?
- What is their breakdown into: facilities, staff, disabled and visitor
- How was the number of new spaces to build chosen? Was it demand driven, or simply "number of floors times spaces per floor?"
- With the proposed multistorey-transport-hub, what will be the new breakdown of facilities, staff, disabled and visitor?
- Why was this specific balance chosen?
- Which tool did you use for modelling demand?
- Did you model the pollution impact, and if so on the "we trust the manufacturers" EURO5/6 numbers, or the real world datasets?
- Did your model consider that Metrobus promises a step change in Bristol transport? If so, what impact will it be considered to have? If not, why not?
- Did any model you explored actually reduce pollution within the central bristol "Red Zone"?
- Did you explore different mixes of staff/visitor allocation —and what impact did it have?
- Did you explore different sizes of car park —and what impact did it have?
Finally, can we have the model you've built up? We can sort out the software.
