Abstract

The perception of transport policy problems and the nature of the debate tend to be influenced by the prevailing policy paradigms and the availability of supporting empirical data. This report discusses this hypothesis in relation to urban congestion and road network performance, addressing four issues: 1. The relationship between urban transport policy framing and the appropriate metrics for measuring transport network performance; 2) A review of how cities and commercial service providers currently capture data about traffic congestion and road network performance and how they present this data; 3) A critique of the limitations of the current indicators of traffic congestion and road network performance; and 4) Proposals for a more insightful and comprehensive set of metrics of urban transport network performance.
