Abstract

Within the framework of this paper, the existence of a Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD) for the city of Thessaloniki is discussed, obtained through a traffic simulation software. Initial findings show that there is a well-defined MFD, which is a property of a network, as it is not influenced by changes in travel demand. The MFD can be used as tool for managing traffic at real-time and for improving accessibility in an area, through pricing strategies and entrance points control based on the accumulation of vehicles.
