Designing a Road Network for Hazardous Materials Transportation

Bahar Y. Kara, Vedat Verter
2004 Transportation Science  
One of the common tools used by governments in mitigating transport risk is to close certain roads to vehicles carrying hazardous materials.  ...  In effect, the road network available to dangerous goods carriers can be determined by the government. The associated transport risk, however, is determined by the carriers' route choices.  ...  Crainic for their comments and suggestions, which were helpful in improving the manuscript.  ...
