Civil engineering students will present their ideas for
solutions to transport issues in Wolverhampton as part of their
final year project.
The University of Wolverhampton students were tasked with
designing solutions for three areas of the city and will be
presenting their ideas on Thursday, 5 May 2011.
The transport issues were providing access for 7,000 people per
day into the i54 development site; improving the existing Stafford
Street/Ring Road junction and also the existing Birmingham
Road/Ring Rd junction.
Principal Lecturer in Civil Engineering at the School of Technology, Peter Mills, said: “This
year the theme of all projects have been transport related. The
projects were purposely quite open-ended to enable the students to
be creative, and this has generated three different solutions for
the Stafford Street junction from the three groups that have chosen
Students have used software to model the traffic flows at
different time periods and tackled environmental
To meet the requirements of professionally accredited civil
engineering degrees, all projects must include geotechnical and
structural designs. In addition, each group must address
environmental and commercial management aspects.
The final year students will present their ideas at a special
event on Thursday, 5 May 2011 in room MC001 at Wolverhampton City
Campus from 5.30pm. The presentation is open to the public.
