A720 Sheriffhall Roundabout Paramics Base Model Calibration, Validation: FOI release

Published: 8 Aug 2017

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

FOI reference: FOI/17/01702
Date received: 11 July 2017
Date responded: 1 August 2017

Information requested

Electronic copies of the A720 Sheriffhall Roundabout Paramics Base Model Calibration and Validation report and also the detailed option testing reports.

Response

As the information you have requested is 'environmental information' for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations. We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA.

This exemption is subject to the 'public interest test'. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes. This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.

The DMRB (Design Manual for Roads and Bridges) Stage 2 Scheme Assessment along with the Traffic and Economic Assessment Report containing the above information can be viewed on Transport Scotland's Website.

Under regulation 6(1)(b) of the EIRs, we do not have to give you information which is already publicly available and easily accessible to you in another form or format. If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the website listed, then please contact me again and I will look into getting copy of this issued to you on CD.
