Overview

Correctly forecasting future traffic demand, and assessing the impacts that construction & rehabilitation projects may have on existing traffic volumes, is a cornerstone of sound financial modelling for road projects, especially those developed using Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).

This key function allows planners and engineers to dimension roadway facilities and anticipate likely impacts of new developments. However, traffic prediction modelling is a vast domain in which a wide range of models suited for specific purposes exist. Using a combination of models and case studies, this practitioner-oriented class will bridge the gap between traffic forecasting & financial modelling.
