Tra±c management has grown from a tool to optimize tra±c conditions on links that suffer congestion (e.g. maximizing capacity) to a mean to upgrade robustness and ensure travel times through traffic networks. In general there are two ways to improve reliability of a tra±c network: enhance reliability on the links or create more alternative links. This thesis is not about creating extra reliability (and capacity) to networks by building new links, but on reliability on existing links.
