The purpose of this research was to investigate if and how systems dynamic (SD) modelling could be used for understanding traffic flows at an inter-regional (state highway) level, in the context of improving understanding of the relationship between economic activity, the demand for freight, and the performance of the rail and road network. We used the Auckland – Hamilton – Tauranga (AHT) triangle as a pilot case study.
