Samenvatting This paper discusses a framework used to develop measures of accessibility that take into consideration the travel behaviour of individuals in addition to other factors that are sensitive to transport and urban planning policies. The capabilities of the accessibility framework to evaluate transport policies are demonstrated to evaluate the impact of the Adelaide-Crafers Highway for road users in metropolitan Adelaide. The Adelaide-Crafers Highway provides road users an alternate and more direct route between Adelaide and the suburbs of Stirling through the Mt Lofty Ranges. Road users benefit from improved travel times, reduced fuel costs, and increased safety and reduced accident costs through route length reduction, the bypassing and elimination of accident black spots, and an overall improvement of the road. The results from the accessibility framework show how the benefits of the highway are distributed throughout metropolitan Adelaide and how the suburbs within Stirling have benefited from the highway construction based on the accessibility that individuals residing in Stirling have to their activities.
