COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN AND EVALUATION OF TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SCHEMES

Recent influences on traffic planning call for schemes which not only take more account of the needs of other road users apart from car drivers, but do this for a very restricted level of investment. Program lp-plan is a linear programming-based technique for helping in the design of traffic management schemes which consider many different demands on a road network, e.g. From bus users, pedestrians and car users. Lp-plan designs schemes in terms of vehicle routeings as well as calculating settings for traffic signals. Program traffic is a dynamic simulation model which permits an analysis of the queueing behaviour of vehicles and pedestrians traversing road networks where most junctions are controlled by traffic lights. Traffic can model such complexities as right-turning traffic in a queue and computer-controlled traffic lights; after successful calibration on a present traffic management scheme, it was used to demonstrate the advanatge of an alternative scheme designed by lp-plan. /Author/ /TRRL/
