The Use of Microsimulation Traffic Models for On-road Public Transport
This study looked into four on-road public transport (ORPT) priority treatments including: full bus lane (FBL), set back bus lane (SBBL), queue jump bus lane (QJBL) and no priority (NP). Microsimulation traffic modelling (MSTM) is a useful tool for…
Modelling of Signalised Intersections: Case Study
This study compares and examines the performance of micro-modelling (SIDRA) and microsimulation (AIMSUN, VISSIM and Q-PARAMICS) in modelling of single signalised intersections. The aim is to contribute to the Austroads NS1371 guidelines by improving…
Freeway Traffic Flow Under Congested Conditions: Literature Review
This report provides a literature review on the analyses of the flow breakdown process on a freeway. It begins with the basic freeway flow theory and automatic freeway control tools now in operation. The factors that contribute to flow breakdowns on…
Community Attitudes to Road Freight Vehicles
This report describes the perceived impact of heavy freight vehicles using major freight routes on people living or working close to such routes. The literature obtained, and the experience of relevant stakeholders, suggested that noise and…
Strategies for Reducing the Environmental Impacts of Increased Night-Time Operations of Road Freight: A Scoping Study
It is predicted that the Australian road freight task will more than double between 2000 and 2020. The Australian heavy vehicle industry estimates that the increased road freight task will result in the addition of approximately 50,000 trucks to the…
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…
Maintenance Techniques to Reduce Social and Environmental Impacts
Selection of maintenance techniques is always a balance between the administering authority costs and social and environmental costs and outcomes. This project provides practical information and a methodology (including a worked example) for…
The use and application of microsimulation traffic models
Microsimulation traffic models (MSTMs) have in recent years become accepted as useful tools amongst road and transport authorities to analyse and identify solutions for traffic and transport planning. The synergy between information technologies and…
Modelling, Measuring and Mitigating Road Traffic Noise
This Report examines the role of noise impact assessment in the management of road traffic noise. Part 1 provides an overview of noise impact assessment including issues such as the existing noise environment, route selection and route changes,…
Economic Evaluation of Road Investment Proposals: Overtaking Lanes - An International Review
This report describes the results of a review of international literature undertaken in 2002 on the evaluation and application of intermittent overtaking lanes on two-way roads in rural traffic environments. This report also contains a comprehensive…
