Melbourne metropolitan transport model: final report

This report is the result of a study of the effects of land use and transport policies on transport related greenhouse gas emissions in metropolitan Melbourne. The report describes the evaluation of land use and transport network options for Melbourne. The evaluation process relied extensively on use of the TRANSTEP computer package, for which training was provided to Vic Roads staff as part of the study. The stated aim of the study is to develop a model which can be used to estimate the likely changes in travel, greenhouse gases, urban development patterns and their effects as the result of different policy options designed to influence the level and type of travel in Melbourne. This is required initially for the development of strategy options for the Traffic in Melbourne study and the State Greenhouse Strategy. The study has analysed the expected operation of the transport system in metropolitan Melbourne for the years 2001, 2011 and 2031. Estimates of greenhouse gas emissions have been derived for those years and for 2005. It is expected that these estimates will be useful in preparing the Greenhouse Strategy and for the Traffic in Melbourne study.
