Recalibrating Adelaide’s strategic transport model
This study will develop a robust, efficient and cost-effective methodology for the recalibration of the South Australian strategic transport demand model (MASTEM} that does not rely on primary data collection methods.
In particular it will use household travel diary datasets collected in other jurisdictions within Australia to update MASTEM model parameters. Wherever possible, these datasets will be augmented with additional information available through the Census and other datasets regularly collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
In some cases, model parameters will be updated based on established values reported in the literature. At conclusion, the project will offer an updated set. of parameter values for MASTEM, and a general methodology that can be used to continually update model parameters in the future.
More information on this project will soon be published.
