EVALUATING THE EFFECTS OF ROAD PRICING DURING THE MORNING PEAK

This report describes the further development and applications of a dynamic simulation model which is used to analyse the effects of road pricing schemes; the analysis is carried out within the context of the DRIVE project IDMS (V1008). The simulation model predicts travellers' mode, departure time and route choices under time dependent demand and traffic conditions, and also estimates the effects that different road pricing policies will have on the overall level of congestion in an urban network, during the morning peak period. The simulation results illustrate the importance of toll ring location, period of operation, and price level as independent influences on the resulting patterns of traffic on the network. (TRRL)
