TOEPASSING VAN EEN TIME-OF-DAY MODULE IN HET LANDELIJK MODEL

The evaluation and determination of transportation policies require considerations of both 24-hour and peak-hour traffic flows. The split between peak and off-peak is often assumed to be fixed. In addition to congestion, however, several policy decisions also effect the distribution of trips between peak and off-peak. The interaction of policy measures and congestion can create second-order' effects that reduce the impact of traffic reducing measures. The national model has been extended by incorporating a flexible time-of-day module to model time-of-day changes including second order effects. The system has been applied to a policy which contains time period specific road pricing. The results show that this form of road pricing is more effective in reducing congestion than in reducing kilometres travelled. (Author/TRRL)
