Abstract

Traffic management can broadly be divided into the two fields of demand management (TDM) and traffic control. Also, traffic management depends largely o data, which enables the development of purposive strategies and their efficient realization. In these three areas the changes will take place. Generally speaking, traffic management will undergo a main-streaming process, basing the singular approaches of the present on more substantial and reliable information, using more saphisticated technology to gather data, to develop strategies, and to inform and influence travellers. Environmental aspects will gain more importance. Modern technologies will enable a dynamic and tailored infrastructure operation, getting the most auf of existing roads and tansport facilities. The shift of trips in time, space and transport mode will be the key to a more efficient ifrastructure operation. Balancing travel demand and spare capacity of the given transport infrastructure will be improved by advanced data availability, traveller information and control measures. Mobility pricing will play a major role not only in finance, but in influencing travel behaviour, too. However, not only due to financial constraints, the ex post evaluation of measures will bear an increasingly significant impact on the planning and realization process in the future, leading finally to the implementation of a comprehensive quality management.
