Strategic traffic assignment (TA) models assess long-term effects of policies on route choices of travelers. To meet stability requirements, current strategic TA models lack modelling of queues. This thesis develops two TA models that include queue modelling whilst satisfying stability requirements along with a method to fuse observed link flows, congestion patterns and -delays. All methods are shown to be applicable in the large-scale strategic application context.
