A NEW METHOD OF APPRAISAL OF TRAFFIC FLOW

EIN NEUES VERFAHREN ZUR SCHAETZUNG DES VERKEHRSUMFANGS

Until now reliance has been placed mainly on the Lillian laws of travel or a simplification of the newtonian gravity model for the forecasting of traffic flows. The criticism of these methods is of their schematic method of approach and the insufficient statistical weight given to the traffic relieving factors. A new method of calculation attempts to overcome these deficiencies. The starting point is the travel requirements of the population, whereby the differing communal and economic conditions of different groups of people are taken into account. Also the differences in travel habits between large, medium and small towns which result from the differences in their economy and their attractiveness are taken into account. The use of the new method is illustrated using as an example the rail and road traffic of the Lahn area in 1972. /TRRL/
