ACCIDENT FREQUENCIES AND CAUSES WITHIN TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS: BALANCE OR IMBALANCE?

This paper examines whether or not clustering transportation infrastructure increases accident frequencies or probabilities in the Netherlands. Transportation modalities included are highways, railroads and water transportation. It is concluded that clustering line infrastructure does not effect an increase in accident frequencies on the transportation modalities examined. In addition, clustering infrastructure does not influence accident causes, as clustering does not cause an increase in human error. Chapter 2 describes the theory utilized, chapter 3 presents an overview of clustered line infrastructure in the Netherlands, and chapter 4 evaluates the theoretical interferences described in chapter 2.
