The impact of highway construction on the volume and distribution of traffic flows: Case study for highway A2 in Serbia
In this paper, the total traffic flows on the old and new road were analyzed, after the construction of the new road. Traffic flows were analyzed on the example of the A2 highway (the Miloš Veliki highway) and the B-22 road (the so-called Ibarska Magistrala). The aim of the papaer is the analysis of the distribution of total traffic flows, as well as the analysis of traffic flows by toll categories between old and new road. Statistical analysis methods were applied in the paper. The obtained results show a significant increase in total traffic flows after the construction of the highway on the Belgrade - Čačak road direction. The analysis yielded very interesting data on the distribution of traffic flows. In further research, it is necessary to conduct a survey in order to reveal the realtions and influencing factors on the volume and distribution of traffic flows, as well as the category of traffic flows (newly created, diverted and normal traffic flows).
