A MODELLING EXERCISE TO ASSESS AREAWIDE IMPACTS OF A TRAVEL DEMAND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
In an attempt to explore the effectiveness of various Travel Demand Management (TDM) measures in metropolitan Melbourne, a comprehensive study was undertaken which concentrates on various transport/economic/social issues. This paper outlines the major concept and approaches of this study. It identifies and examines the key measures. It also presents two prototype models for estimating the degree of effectiveness of each individual measure on the metropolitan network as well as the principal freeway/arterial roads. The paper concentrates on the merits of road pricing and travel patterns, as part of a comprehensive and balanced program which includes: (1) public transport priorities; (2) construction of the necessary roads; (3) wide range ridesharing scheme; and (4) community involvement campaigns.
