This research uses the earlier work on 'Linking Trip Ends and Traffic' to develop an equilibrium framework suitable for use in the National Transport Model work. The aim is to be able to provide a modelling structure which can be used for a wide range of policy options, and produce a reiterative model capable of balancing supply and demand for road space.
The National Transport Model development requires modules capable of producing a balance between supply of road-space and traffic predicted to use the road network. Conventional models can be very large and iterating between supply and demand in a conventional manner seemed unlikely to be achieved. This research attempts to produce a method for achieving satasfactory equilibrium.
