Dynamic Road Marking Applied to the Amsterdam Ring: Road What are the Traffic Effects, According to INDY?

This paper investigates the effects of dynamic road marking on the Ring around Amsterdam. This Ring is congested during most of the day, but especially during the peak periods in the morning and evening rush hours. The goal is to determine what (traffic) effects, if any, can be found by applying Dynamic Road Marking during the morning rush hours. The INDY model was used to estimate the effects. INDY is a dynamic assignment model that combines analytical simulation with a route choice component. The most significant results are (1) that the choice of route changes significantly with the added capacity on the Ring Road, (2) average speed increases on the Ring Road; and (3) negative effects on throughput are avoided.
