Multiobjective Approach to Long-Term Interurban Multilevel Road Network Planning

This article presents a multiobjective approach to long-term interurban multilevel road network planning. In addition to the efficiency objectives dealt with in most of the literature where the subject is addressed, the approach takes into account robustness and equity objectives. For achieving the objectives, two types of action can be performed: the construction of a new road of a given level; and the upgrading of an existing road to a higher level. The approach is consistent with the planning framework of the highway capacity manual, using the concept of level of service to assess traffic flow conditions. The application of the approach is illustrated for a case study involving the main road network of Poland.
