The value of new cross-radial links for public transport network resilience
2014 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The introduction of new links to network topology could potentially contrib-ute to greater capability to withstand system breakdowns. This paper analyses the value of adding new cross-radial links for public transport network resilience. The value is evaluated in terms of passenger welfare under disruptions. Using a model that considers passengers’ dynamic travel choices, stochastic traffic conditions, timetables and capacity constraints, a new light rail transit line in Stockholm, Sweden is evaluated. The results show that the cross-radial link reduces the impacts of disrup-tions of critical links; the total value of resilience is positive and significantly offsets the loss in welfare caused by disruption of the cross-radial link itself.
