Intelligent Roadwork Planning with Congestion Forecasts
TRIAS Traffic Roadworks Impact Assessment
TRIAS - Traffic Roadworks Impact Assessment - is a tool that WPS developed together with PTV Group and LSGB (Landesbetrieb Straßen, Brücken und Gewässer) for traffic forecasting and impact analysis of construction measures.
Many cities in Germany and Europe are growing and densifying. At the same time, commuter traffic is increasing on the outskirts of conurbations. Construction measures at the expense of road capacity are becoming increasingly problematic, as capacities cannot scale linearly with the increase in traffic. Thus, the requirements for intelligent traffic planning are increasing. However, known software solutions for planning construction measures provide little or no information about the influence of the planned measures on traffic flow and road capacities during the construction period. This is where TRIAS comes in.
TRIAS simulates the effects of construction measures on the expected traffic situation and provides intuitively understandable decision-making aids for different planning variants. With the new software, traffic planners, coordinators and decision-makers can plan construction sites more intelligently and improve traffic flow.
The use of the TRIAS software has a long-term, positive side effect: the more intelligent planning effectively contributes to the reduction of CO2, nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions in cities.
