LIMITED AREA TRAFFIC ANALYSIS

Traditional assignments of traffic to a whole city tend to be coarse and expensive. In many cases, it is desirable to look at a small part of the city and to determine the likely effects of many possible alternatives. Traditional traffic assignments are not appropriate in these cases. Techniques exist to modify the existing methods to provide cheaper, more realistic results by limiting the area analysed. The paper will describe these techniques; the problems encountered in applying them; methods of overcoming these problems and list aspects where research is still needed to improve the results. /TRRL/
