Accessibility Scenarios for the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Region (2004-2005)

This project was to complement the project "Analysis of Central Constraints, Instruments and Goal Criteria for State Transport Planning in North-Rhine Westphalia" conducted by the Institut für Landes- und Stadtentwicklungsforschung und Bauwesen (ILS) for the Ministry for Transport, Energy and Regional Planning of the state of North-Rhine Westphalia by accessibility modelling. For this, subregions of the Rhine-Ruhr area (municipalities and districts of larger cities) were assessed regarding their accessibility by different transport modes. Current accessibility potentials were calculated and possible impacts on accessibility of strategic scenarios of transport infrastructure development were assessed. The Final Report of the project (in German) can be downloaded.
