Dikutip dari:


The PhD stipend is available within the general study programme "Planning and Development".

The PhD project is a part of a larger research project entitled "Uncertainties in Transport Project Evaluation" carried out by Aalborg University and Denmark's Technical University in cooperation with few universities and research institutes in other countries. The political goals within the transport sector often conflict with the general trend development, e.g. the increasing transport demand and volumes that lead to increasing congestion and CO2 emissions. The users' responses to policy initiatives and the derived impacts can be difficult to forecast due to complex causal relationships. Traffic forecast models and socio-economic cost-benefit analyses have been increasingly applied as tools for decision support, and they are often used to justify new transport infrastructure projects.

However, experience from a number of large-scale investment projects has shown that the traffic forecasts on which decisions to implement the projects were based, have often been insufficient and sometimes misleading.

The purpose of the PhD project is to investigate why traffic forecasts are wrong, and how they can become significantly more accurate. To understand this, forecasted versus actual traffic are studied: How do traffic volumes after project opening compare to the forecasts? Is there any systematic pattern in deviations between forecasted and actual traffic volumes? How is this explained? What are the consequences? The aim is to show whether decisions to build are well-informed or not. Therefore the forecasts available to decision makers at the time of making the decision to build are compared to actual outturn traffic.
