Balanced Road Space Allocation: A Comprehensive Approach

This paper presents a new methodology to assist road management authorities make open, defendable and reliable decisions regarding the allocation of road space between competing demands. It focuses on the problem of allocating road space and time when providing priority to public transport services. The paper reviews previous approaches identifying three critical problems; the evaluation criteria used are simplistic and narrow, dynamic vehicle flow impacts are not usually considered and travel behavior modeling is limited. A new methodology which addresses each of these issues is presented. A specific application of the method to a difficult problem concerning priority for trams operating in congested mixed traffic conditions is presented.
