Transport Infrastructure Development Modelling For Dispersed Cities
Over the years there have been many Transport Infrastructure models developed and implemented, however these models are quite generic and do not totally satisfy the ever continuously changing Transport Infrastructure Environment for dispersed cities. This paper will propose a robust and sequential Transport Infrastructure Development Modelling (TIDM) mechanism especially for dispersed cities. Furthermore, this proposed TIDM utilises the Comprehensive Mobility Plans (CMP) technique together with, Traffic Analysis (collection and analysis of the existing urban transport environment), Transportation planning (including urban use and strategy) and various Implementation programs. In addition, this paper considers more technical Traffic ngineering concepts such as Volume to Capacity ratio. Moreover, the proposed TIDM will be implemented on Melbourne (Australia) as a preliminary case study and the initial results will be reviewed and discussed. The conclusion of this paper, will consist of the preliminary findings and outcome of the TIDM, will then be critiqued and discussed.
