JOURNEY TIME WAS USED TO ASSESS THE QUALITY OF EXISTING TRAFFIC FACILITIES BETWEEN MAIN CENTERS. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF THE METHOD OF PRIORITY RATING CHOSEN. EACH NEW LINK WAS ASSESSED BY MEANS OF FOUR INDEPENDENT PRIORITY CRITERIA: TRAFFIC DENSITY, SOCIAL BENEFIT, ACCESSIBILITY AND LINK QUALITY. /TRRL/
