The Transportation Model: The second stage of the transportation planning process is to use the collected data to build up a transportation model. This model is the key to predicting future travel demands and network needs and is derived in four recognised stages, i.e., trip generation, trip distribution, traffic assignment and model split.

Traffic Forecasts are created for design, planning and environmental analysis purposes. Planning and Zoning Information This document contains basic information about local planning and zoning agencies throughout the state.
