The European Commission, DG XI, has issued a call for proposals for a study entitled "Overview and evaluation of methodologies for the forecasting of induced traffic on new transport infrastructure". This study concerns new and upgraded transport infrastructure ranging from the completion of "missing links" to new generations of transport modes (e.g. high-speed trains) and entire transport corridors and networks. Induced traffic is traffic generated by the provision of such infrastructure and the ensuing advantages for its users at all levels (local, regional, national, international) and taking account of modal shifts. The general objectives of the study are to provide an overview and evaluation of existing studies and models in this field worldwide, as well as of the availability of relevant data at a European level. Recommendations are to be made concerning the forecasting of induced traffic on the trans-European transport network (TEN) as proposed by the Commission.
