On 8 June 2016 TRAIL PhD student Diana Vonk Noordegraaf successfully defended her PhD thesis ‘Road Pricing Policy Implementation’ at Delft University of Technology.
Road pricing – policies that impose direct charges on road use – is a potentially effective measure to reduce (the negative effects of) road transport. However, road pricing policy implementation is often challenging. This thesis increases the understanding of which implementation factors can play a role in road pricing policy implementation and in what way. The analyses of real-world cases, such as kilometre charging and Peak Hour Avoidance in the Netherlands, are the core of this thesis.
