Relevance of travel time reliability indicators: a managed lanes case study

Abstract : Managed lanes operations refer to multiple strategies for recurring congestion control by increasing the road capacity or adapting its configuration to the demand level. As a result, the evaluation of their impacts usually focuses on congestion or safety-related indicators. However, with the growing prosperity, consumers demand higher quality transport services, for which reliable transport networks are central. This paper is focused on the travel time reliability assessment of a managed lane experience from a French motorway. The paper shows results from the field test experience of the hard shoulder dynamic use on the A4-A86 motorway in the east of Paris. Further to the reliability assessment, the paper focuses on the reliability indicators. It particularly shows the weakness of the skew of the distribution of travel time indicator.
