8 A self
/
contained town consists of 4 residential areas A, B, C, D and 2 industrial states X and Y. ?'
Generation equations show that for the design year in question , the trips from home to work
generated by each residential area per 24 hour day are as follows :
A B C D
1000 2250 1750 3200
There are 3,700 jobs in industrial estate X and 4,500 in industrial estate Y. It is known that the
attraction between zones is inversely proportional to the square of the journey time between
zones. The journey times in minutes from home to work are :
Zones A B C D
X 15 15 10 15
Y 20 10 10 20
Calculate and tabulate the inter zonal trips for journeys from home to work. (16 Marks)
