Abstract [en]

As detailed in Whitehead, Bunker and Chung (2011), a congestion-charging scheme provides a mechanism to combat congestionwhilst simultaneously generating revenue to improve both the road and public transport networks. The aim of this paper is to assess thefeasibility of implementing a congestion-charging scheme in the city of Brisbane in Australia and determine the potential effects of thisinitiative. In order to so, a congestion-charging scheme was designed for Brisbane and modelled using the Brisbane Strategic TransportModel with a base line year of 2026. This paper argues that the implementation of this initiative would prove to be effective in reducing thecities road congestion and increasing the overall sustainability of the region.
