The aim of this project is to provide the DETR with a better understanding of the determinants of long term travel growth when compared against relationships within the National Transport Model (NTM) now being developed. The key objective was to develop a series of well documented transport forecasting models.
This project was designed to show the advantages of using aggregate relationships for long term forecasts of road traffic growth when compared with the NTM and to provide DfT with a better understanding of the appropriate level of aggregation. The research should begin in early May 2001 and should be completed within 21 months of the start date.
