APPLICATION OF A LOCAL AREA TRAFFIC MODEL IN AN INNER SUBURB OF MELBOURNE

The structure and development of a new traffic assignment procedure for use in small, detailed urban street networks is described. The model couples a probabilistic path selection procedure with a dynamic feedback system for delays, congestion and queueing in a network. It is intended for use with period travel demand data in the evaluation of network traffic and/or environmental management schemes, and the possible traffic impacts of urban redevelopment schemes. To evaluate the model, data regarding peak period traffic movements through an inner suburban area were collected. Included in the data collection were street traffic volumes and speed distributions, and cordonline origin-destination data for the study area. The particular area (West Hawthorn) is subjected to large volumes of commuter traffic on its local street system during peak demand periods. /Author/TRRL/
