Hourly traffic volume patterns throughout the day in Melbourne

In many urban road planning situations, for example evaluation models, it is necessary to have an indication of the hourly volume pattern throughout a day, but only the total daily volume and very little other information is available. This technical note presents a statistically based methodology for simplifying the hourly pattern by combining like hours. It also presents a simple regression model for predicting the flow in these hour groups and a strategy for incorporating growth of traffic volume. This study has been limited by the nature of the data base and it is therefore recommended that these models only be used in the absence of detailed traffic counting information (a).
