Emerging Social Dilemmas in Managing Transportation-Related Carbon Footprint in Optimal Urban Infrastructure Development

  title={Emerging Social Dilemmas in Managing Transportation-Related Carbon Footprint in Optimal Urban Infrastructure Development},
  author={Loukas Dimitriou},
Urban areas are facing an enormous pressure for mobility opportunities, a phenomenon closely related to economic activity and urban welfare growth. The development of urban transportation networks is a vital component in the performance of metropolitan complexes, where multiple policies can be employed and multiple objectives is urged to be met. In this paper, a policydriven approach will be presented for providing optimal investment plans for future network expansions, by taking into account…

Introducing Transportation-Related Carbon Footprint Considerations in Optimal Urban Road Infrastructure Management
Environmental considerations are gaining importance in civil infrastructure design and management. In particular the transportation sector of urban civil infrastructure is regarded a major


Congested urban transportation networks and emission paradoxes
Multiobjective bilevel optimization for transportation planning and management problems
Many previous studies have formulated the decision-making problems in transportation system planning and management as single-objective bilevel optimization models. However, real-world
Joint pricing and design of urban highways with spatial and user group heterogeneity
This paper addresses the joint optimization of capacity investments and toll charges imposed on multi-group users in monopolistic private highways within general road networks. A game-theoretic
Optimal Peak-Load Pricing, Investment, and Service Levels on Urban Expressways
Optimal tolls, capacities, and service levels for highways can be determined jointly by way of an integrated peak-load pricing model. In this paper, such a model is developed and estimated with data
Sustainable Transportation Networks
Transportation networks are essential to the functioning of societies and economies and provide the infrastructure for the movement of people and goods over space and time. The existence and
A simulation-based multi-objective genetic algorithm (SMOGA) procedure for BOT network design problem
Numerical results show that the SMOGA procedure is robust in generating ‘good’ non-dominated solutions with respect to a number of parameters used in the GA, and performs better than the weighted-sum method in terms of the quality of non- dominated solutions.
