Research Report 586 Regionalisation of the National Land Transport Demand Model

Published: | Category: Economic development , Research programme , Research & reports

Research was undertaken to convert a National Land Transport Demand Model to a Regional Land Transport Demand Model.

The new is intended to be used to construct quantitative long-term (30 year) regional transport planning scenarios.

Model development undertaken included a series of regional and spatial econometric models covering: intra-regional density effects, land use and transport demand (congestion); regional mode of travel choices; inter-regional freight flows by origin and destination; and calibration of regional migration based on age- and location-specific propensities to migrate.

Keywords: demand, freight, household travel, model, projections, regions, scenario modelling, transport
