Project application of integrated transport modelling in South Australia

The South Australian Government has undertaken a detailed planning study for a 9 km section of the North-South Corridor, between Regency Road and Anzac Highway. This important planning exercise has required an intensive transport modelling effort to assist in identifying an effective transport solution, optimising investment by making best use of new and existing assets, and minimising impacts on the urban environment. Three types of transport modelling techniques were considered for the study: macroscopic, mesoscopic and microscopic modelling. None of them in isolation would be able to meet the requirements of this study, and so an integrated three-tier modelling approach was adopted to provide the analytical basis for the planning process. Linking of all these models in a hierarchical structure, with travel characteristics being passed down the hierarchy from the strategic model, ensured the integrity of the wider travel pattern characteristics was maintained through all model elements.
