Résumé / Abstract
The French north-south corridor is the major axis for long distance traffic in France. Infrastructure extension is being planned for all modes of transport, but is not sufficient to relieve congestion. Demand management is necessary for a better use of existing capacity, at different time periods, on different routes, and on different modes. The Degagement project of INRETS is aimed at simulating freight and passenger traffic for all modes of transport so as to enable evaluation of different scenarios.
