Abstract: Big events lead to temporary very high traffic volumes which usually exceed traffic capabilities of the existing infrastructure. Hence, it is necessary to control traffic in a way that helps to keep traffic congestion as low as possible. In this paper we introduce a traffic planning model for big events which optimizes traffic routing, allocates parking space, and defines locations for spot checks on traffic. We extend and modify a traffic flow model that has successfully been used in previous work on evacuation planning. A computational study demonstrates the model’s applicability to a real world situation. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2012
