BENEFIT ASSESSMENT FOR NETWORK TRAFFIC MODELS AND APPLICATION TO ROAD PRICING

THE BASIC FORMULAE FOR THE BENEFITS OR DISBENEFITS FROM ROAD PRICING ARE EXTENDED TO COVER NETWORKS OF ROADS, AND TO TAKE OTHER TAXATION EFFECTS INTO ACCOUNT. THE EFFECTS OF DIFFERING SOCIAL AND SUBJECTIVE COSTS FOR THE MAKING OF A TRIP ARE EXPLORED. THE PROBLEM OF DEFINITION OF TOTAL ECONOMIC BENEFIT IS DISCUSSED. IN PARTICULAR THE CONCEPT OF AN OPTIMUM PATTERN OF ROAD PRICING CHARGES IS DEFINED IN A SELF-CONSISTENT WAY. /AUTHOR/
