OpenCities Planner + CUBE?

This project in Milan was reported at YII 2020, which uses CUBE as a traffic modeling platform.

Has OCP been used with CUBE to create a transport-aware context model anywhere?

Milan is an interesting test bed for this kind of collaboration:

"for the requalification of the seven disused railway yards (Farini, Porta Romana, Porta Genova, Greco-Breda, Lambrate, Rogoredo, San Cristoforo), which overall cover an area of 1,250,000 square metres, of which about 200,000 will continue to be used for railway functions. This is the largest urban regeneration plan that will affect Milan in the next 20 years, one of the largest territory restitching and enhancement projects in Italy and in Europe."

It's pretty difficult to set up these models which takes time and specialised software. Having seven sites should help with ths investment costs? CUBE to provide the simulation code while OCP provides the web-based display platform?

And what happens after the model for the traffic network around the site is set up?

Always found OCP to be a display tool rather than a proper planning tool. Instead of just modeling the building blocks, OCP could provide some tools to model streets? CUBE and ConceptStation tools to generate the roadways and parking impacts? A tool to place transit nodes like bus stops that can be placed in OCP but contain all the 'plumbing' for the underlying CUBE network?

A lot of powerful voices are pushing for more pedestrianisation, but pushing cars out means other streets just get busier. Very popular urban design move, but often with unintended side effects.

Even without the pedestrianisation question, all those online public consultation models are a bit misleading if the traffic isn't co-modeled. The urban environment or 'places' presented would be hugely different with increased traffic, noise and air polution.
