Abstract: This paper proposed a new index called traffic incident management ratio (TIMR) for identifying appropriate roads to be installed with traffic incident management system. The TIMR is defined as the ratio between the expected total travel costs of the degradable transport network without and with traffic incident management programme (TIMP). The traffic flow pattern under the degradation network without TIMP is assumed to follow User Equilibrium (UE) condition, whereas the system optimum (SO) assignment is used to characterise the degradable network condition controlled by TIMP. The main function of TIMP considered in this paper is re-routing of traffic after the Incident. An optimisation programme Is then proposed for identifying critical roads in the network for an installation of TIMP. The critical roads for TIMP is identified by maximising the TIMR which implies that incidents on these critical roads can significantly increase the total network travel time without TIMP in which the installation of TIMP on these links can decrease the impacts significantly. The proposed model can also quantify the critical level of link capacity degradation. The model and algorithm are tested with a network to illustrate the application of the proposed model.
