Microscopic traffic simulation Leuven Ringroad

18048
The Agency for Roads and Traffic Flemish Brabant (AWV) asked TML to conduct a traffic analysis of the Leuven ring road (R23).  The study will analyse a new concept of ‘high-quality public transport’, and in particular its effects on the traffic situation on the Leuven ring road and its incoming regional roads.
Although this study doesn’t aim to come to a cross-checked plan of execution, the Agency for Roads and Traffic will use its results to design specific road sections and junctions along the ring road in a next phase.

For this study, TML uses the software Vissim to compose carefully designed microscopic traffic models, based on existing as well as on new data. First, we design a traffic model for the existing situation; second, we design a traffic model based on the current concept of ‘high-quality public transport’.  Specific to this simulation, we will design optimised traffic lights for both scenarios.  Based on our conclusions, we will formulate well-substantiated propositions to optimise the current design for the concept of ‘high-quality public transport’.  These propositions will be discussed with the Agency for Roads and Traffic, after which we will draw up a final microscopic traffic model which aims to solve (part of) the (potential) concerns in the concept design.
