A framework is proposed for the design of an optimal multimodal transport network for the Randstad area. This research framework consists of a multi-objective optimization heuristic and a fast network assessment module, which results in a set of Pareto optimal solutions. Subsequently, a proper method reduces this set to an acceptably small size, after which every remaining solution is assessed in detail by a newly developed dynamic multimodal assignment model, which provides an overview of the different qualities (like environmental impact, accessibility and livability) of promising networks.
