Modelling road development costs and benefits due to changes in agricultural and industrial outputs to support HDM4 analysis


   Department of Civil Engineering


About the Project

Road development cost and benefits due to changes in agricultural and industrial outputs are not directly included in HDM4. However, there are a number of countries or areas where the development and maintenance of the road networks are strongly associated with the transportation of agricultural and/or industrial outputs which play a vital role in the economies of many countries. It is important that an appropriate model dealing explicitly with this development issue is formed. This project will therefore seek to develop a model to be considered for direct inclusion in HDM4 with emphasis on rural roads. The work will include:
- Literature review of agricultura land industrial outputs models
- Development of a prototype model
- Testing, validation and verification of the model.
- Comparison with other models.
