The purpose of the BYTRANS project was to utilize temporary measures in the road network in Oslo to study the impact on the travel behaviour in the population. This report focuses on how this data can be applied to develop transport models. Modelling of rush hours and especially queueing is a challenging but important topic when analysing measures in urban areas. This is also becoming increasingly relevant since the overall political objectives are that the increase in private car traffic in the biggest Norwegian cities should be curbed in favour of other transport solutions. Modelling of traffic demand during rush hours and traffic flow is complex and the modelling tool has been reviewed to describe the assumptions on which the calculations are based. The temporary capacity reduction in the Brynstunnel has been run in RTM23+ to evaluate how well the model manages to represent this situation.
