Reports that just over one million foreign-registered trucks entered the United Kingdom from mainland Europe in the year ending September 2000, according to the Freight Transport Association. Percentage increase in the traffic levels from 1999 to 2000; Percentage reduction in the number of UK-registered trucks transiting to mainland Europe; Drop in the overall cross-channel market for UK operators from 1997 to 2000; Statistics related to foreign operators from Germany, Italy and Eastern Europe.

    The level of spatial detail (i.e. zone size and network detail) used in transportation analyses is commonly regarded as an important factor affecting the accuracy of the resulting estimates of the impacts of a transportation plan. The precise effects of the level of detail are, however, largely...

    Until recently, analyses of the assignment problem have considered only restricted forms of the functions which relate the costs of travel to volumes of traffic. These analyses are not applicable to networks which include detailed models of either uncontrolled junctions or signal-control...

    Estimation of Origin-Destination (O-D) matrix is very important in transportation planning. This matrix contains information about travel demand between different zones of a region. In this paper, a model is proposed for estimation of (O-D) matrix using traffic counts. In the model, (O-D) matrix...

    Traditionally, to implement the first-best marginal cost pricing scheme in a traffic network requires the information on the exact demand function or true origin-destination demand, which, however, is rarely available in practice. To overcome this dilemma, the trial-and-error method has been...
