|Title:||ANALYSIS OF DESIGN FACTORS FOR HIGHWAY FRANCHISING||Authors:||LU ZHAOYANG||Keywords:||Build-Operate-Transfer, highway franchising, traffic demand uncertainty, user heterogeneity, pavement maintenance cost, highway route location||Issue Date:||15-Aug-2016||Citation:||LU ZHAOYANG (2016-08-15). ANALYSIS OF DESIGN FACTORS FOR HIGHWAY FRANCHISING. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This thesis is devoted to the analysis of fundamental build-operate-transfer (BOT) highway design factors by considering some practical issues, especially in the aspects of the government and private firms. In the presence of traffic demand uncertainty, the first part of the thesis deals with the BOT highway contract with fixed capacity and economic toll adjustment provisions to traffic variations. The second part of this thesis is dedicated to analyze the effects of heterogeneous users and highway maintenance cost on the design factors. The third part of this thesis investigates how to select the optimal highway route location with the predetermined origin and destination cities in transportation networks, and how to determine the distance-based tolls for multi-type vehicles. In summary, this thesis extends the predictive economic analyses of BOT highway projects by addressing these practical issues: traffic demand uncertainty, user heterogeneity, pavement serviceability and maintenance cost, and route location selection.||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/134789|
