Road network simulation models and tools are increasingly being used for strategic and operational traffic management with the use of widely available online traffic data. The widespread use of such models raises the prospect of transport system optimisation, improving energy consumption, delays and carbon emissions. Although strategic interventions such as the building of new roads or infrastructure is costly and time-consuming, significant savings can be made through the modelling and optimisation of the operation of the network through signal timings.
