Abstract

This paper summarises work to date on the UK Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions' on-going Feasibility Study on National Transport Modelling.

The Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions does not necessarily endorse the views expressed in this paper, and has not yet decided whether or not to proceed with development of a National Transport Model (NTM).

The paper does not discuss likely costs of NTM development, though these are being estimated as part of the Feasibility Study, but rather focuses on the potential role of a NTM, and on what form it would best take.
