Abstract

The project aims at developing schemes for reducing environmental pollution in Central Business Districts through use of RTI-based traffic operation and control measures; and to appraise the implications for vehicle technologies of potential future air quality standards in an RTI-based transport environment. This involves monitoring and prediction of pollution levels and coordination with existing CEC and national efforts to set appropriate standards. The project focused on the development of alternative RTI-based control strategies and evaluation of their effects on pollution levels using a model suite with four interactive elements of assignment model, traffic model, emissions model and dispersion model.
