TECHNIQUES OF TRANSPORT PLANNING; VOLUME 2 SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION MODELS

Rational transport planning seeks the optimum quantity timing, and allocation of transport investments in support of specific economic development goals. Volume 1 of Techniques of Transport Planning surveyed the underlying principles and synthesized the literature of conventional project evaluation, or cost-benefit analysis, as a tool for making transport investment decisions. In this second volume, the authors apply systems analysis to the transport network of a developing country, Colombia, using a series of interacting models to simulate the network and the economy of Colombia as a whole. Their aim is to demonstrate the applicability of the models to actual planning decisions made under realistic constraints. Systems Analysis and Simulation Models is the final study produced by the Brookings Transport Research Program, which was supported by a grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development.
