Description:Research Question The proposed project is aimed to developing a theoretical framework for optimization of road charges in congested road networks with heterogeneous users. In order to optimize the tolls the gradient information of traffic flows and travel time with respect to tolls is of utmost importance. The main research questions are: How equilibrium traffic flows and travel times are affected by marginal changes of tolls? How the total value of travel time is affected?
