AP-R299/07 : Microsimulation as a Planning, Operations and Training Aid for Incident Management

This report investigates the appropriateness of microsimulation modelling for the planning, operation and training of incident management in a road network. The methodology for this study includes a literature review and a modelling case study of the West Gate Freeway in Melbourne. A microsimulation model was set up using AIMSUN NG for the study area. It is concluded that significant resources are required in setting up a microsimulation model for incident analysis. Once set up and calibrated, the model is a useful tool for the planning, operation and training of incident management and other complex traffic applications.
