The Multi-Criteria Road Network Design Problem in an Urban Area

This paper reports on an extension and a generalization of a previously proposed model and genetic algorithm for the multi-criteria road network design problem. In this approach, both network layout and link capacity (link layout and traffic lights) are optimized. Different optimization criteria are included for users, non-users and public system managers. Demand is considered elastic with respect to mode choice; both morning and afternoon peak periods are taken into account. In addition, choice of parking location is simulated. The procedure is applied to a test and to a real transportation system. The proposed procedure can be used within both mono- or multi-criteria optimization and is flexible in terms of the possibility of using parallel procedures and of adding/deleting solutions during computing.
