THE CAR TRAIN FROM VIENNA TO INNSBRUCK FROM A TRAFFIC ENGINEERING VIEWPOINT

DER AUTOREISEZUG WIEN - INNSBRUCK AUS VERKEHRSTECHNISCHER SICHT

The use of a car train between Vienna and Innsbruck was planned by the Austrian federal motorway authorities for the 1979-80 winter season. In association with this expert traffic engineering opinion was sought on the volume of individual traffic on the parallel roads. Data obtained from 9 permanent automatic counting points for the period January 1976 - November 1978 and from a traffic survey undertaken at the German-Austrian border were used to calculate the mean daily traffic volume, classify it according to winter, summer and spring volumes, and establish the percentage of tourist traffic. The study showed that in summer tourist traffic accounts for 70 percent of individual traffic, but in winter only 25 percent; it also showed that on the through routes in the west there is a much higher proportion of foreign traffic.
