In 2004, Bermuda began the competitive process of bidding to host events in the 2007 Cricket World Cup. Stewart was selected to provide transportation planning services in support of the Bermuda Bid. This process began with an exhaustive inventory of all transportation facilities (roadway, air, marine) and modes (pedestrian, bike, automobile, motor scooter, cruise ship, ferry, taxi). Demand analysis required the projection of likely attendance for each of the different events under consideration for hosting.
The National Sports Centre is centrally located on the island while tourist accommodations, the airport, and a major cruise ship port are concentrated at either end. This posed significant challenges to the largely two-lane road network leading to the stadium. These challenges were met through a rigorous public and stakeholder involvement program that resulted in commitments from the Bermuda School Board to close schools during the games, Marine and Ports Commission to increase ferry schedules, Bermuda Public Transportation to offer dedicated bus services, and the Department of Transportation to dedicate a one-way loop around the stadium.
Stewart also provided facility design and program planning services for this highly competitive bid to host events in the 2007 Cricket World Cup. The bid included the $34 million upgrade of the existing Bermuda National Sports Centre with new media, VIP and players building, temporary structures, and extensive site development.
