A Method to Estimate Limits to Highway Network Scale

To research the rationality of the highway network scale, this paper establishes a model to estimate the limits to highway network development. First, it provides analysis of highway network development and introduces a function of highway network development. After that, it establishes a model for highway network development limits and verifies the rationality of this determination method. Finally, it applies this method to highway network development in Shandong Province. The research demonstrates that the limit of the scale of highway network development 1.1 times more than that of the saturated development level. Based on that, the scale of highway network development limits value is calculated. Then it is possible to efficiently define the rationality of the highway network scale.
