Traditional traffic management is in most cases used only on a local level. It lacks an integrated and network wide approach. The main reason for this is that different network types are operated and maintained by different road managers. In practice these road managers are only responsible for their own part of the network and normally they do not communicate or cooperate that much. To deal with this The Netherlands has adopted a different approach, described in the handbook Sustainable Traffic Management. Together with this method, a tool was the developed to support it. The tool includes the dynamic traffic assignment model MARPLE and is already applied in more than twenty projects. Copyright © 2006 IFAC.
