The report reviews approaches to highway assignment in the context of the transportation planning process and the general theory of assignment. The multiflow model is examined in detail, with simulations run to test model properties and to compare the relative performance of alternative distributions of perceived link costs. The possibility of developing an analytical approach is discussed. The model is applied to a real network and the stability of assignment is examined under random perturbation of perceived costs. The work is related to the debate on generalised cost/time-only approaches to assignment and its consistency with the conventional evaluation methodlogy discussed. (TRRL)
