APPROPRIATE TRAFFIC MODELLING TECHNIQUES FOR DEVELOPING CITIES: THE CASE OF THE OMAN CAPITAL AREA. IN: URBAN TRANSPORT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES: LESSONS IN INNOVATION

Transport models have been used in transport planning during the past 30 years. Conventional transport modeling techniques have been criticised for their extensive data requirements, high cost of development and application, inflexibility, computational complexity, static rather than dynamic nature and the uncertainty surrounding their output. As a result, alternative techniques have been developed such as disaggregate models, house hold-based activity models, travel budget models, models based on volume counts, stated preference models, and accessibility analysis. This paper describes the application of alternative techniques in a transport study for the Capital Area of the Sulatanate of Oman.
