The Performance Evaluation of Expressway Operation by Estimating Passenger-km and Cargo-km Transported via Expressways

Even though the 4,112-km-long expressway network in Korea as of December 2013 plays a very important role in passenger and cargo transportation, there is no accurate data for the amount of passengers and cargo transported via expressways. However, the number of vehicles moving through expressways can be easily estimated out using data produced from the Toll Collection System (TCS) and the Vehicle Detection System (VDS). Currently, the Center for Korea Transport Database provides the total amount of passengers and cargos transported in Korea via roadways, railways, air transport, and marine transport in the units of million persons per year, million person-km per year, million tons per year, and million ton-km per year. However, the amount of passengers and cargo transported via expressways was not estimated so far. On the other hand, the European Union Road Federation, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and World Road Association (PIARC) provide the information regarding the amount of passengers and cargo transported via expressways in person-km and ton-km. This study was initiated to estimate the amount of passengers and cargo transported via expressways in person-km and ton-km in Korea.
