An analysis method on network capacity of belt freeway based on road network reserve capacity is put forward in this paper. Through the introduction of multiple multiplier, the method can simply analyse the maximum traffic volume contained by belt freeway in the conditions of a given network basic demand and meeting the constraints of road traffic capacity and service level. In comparison to the traditional method, the proposed method takes into consideration actual network structure, OD flow

Analysis results of belt freeway capacity of Yancheng city in China show that the presented method is not only simple and practical, but also can objectively reflect the status of the belt freeway capacity, and provide a basis for decision-making of belt freeway expansion and urban expressway construction.
