Thesis Topic/Title
Modelling transportation demand using EMME4: A case study of Toowoomba urban area

Description

Creating a livable urban environment and fostering more sustainable travel behaviours are on the top most agenda for councils. Obviously, there are many factors that could contribute in this creation including the interactions between urban form, human activities, and travel behavior, and failing to adequately address human needs and desire. In this process, microsimulation plays a vital role in reducing the risk of incompatible urban planning outcomes. The objective of this study is to develop a transport model for the Toowoomba city area using EMME4 and to evaluate the role of transport system management (TSM) strategies to be introduced for easing city’s traffic congestion. First, this study will to develop a transport model for the Toowoomba city area using EMME4. Recent data on urban activities, geographical details, and transport network will be used in modeling, and the predictability of the developed model will be checked against the observed data. The model will then be used to predict the expected outcomes from the application of various TSM strategies in near future for easing the city’s traffic-related issues.
