THE TRAFFIC GENERATED BY A NEW ROAD INVESTMENT

UUDEN LIIKENNEVAYLAN SYNNYTTAMA LIIKENNE

The study contains basic information on the traffic induced by a new transport investment. This subject has been approached by conducting expert interviews, a literature study and traffic surveys as well as analyses on Traffic Monitoring System data and transport models. Information on induced traffic is required for traffic forecasting as well as for economic evaluation of transport investments. New transport link or improved connection promotes several changes in the entire transport system. The most common impact is the reassignment of traffic. Other impacts include shifts in modal split and destination choice together with the generation of new trips with respect to the particular transport investment. There is little research conducted on these new, generated trips.
