Abstract

In this paper, a road network design problem at an urban level is reported. After providing a general overview of the problem, a mathematical formulation is provided. In the design model, both the network layout and the signals setting are considered. An application on a real network is performed. In relation to the deign procedure, a comparison between the before and after configurations (generated with a plan or design) is reported. The objective is to increase the safety of road users. Keywords: heuristic algorithms, genetic algorithm, Tabu Search, network constraints.
