Abstract

Severe road congestion is a major challenge for Eilat. Growth in the population is expected to make it worse. City planners can benefit from planning tools to identify causes of congestion and strategies to mitigate it. Urban planning scorecards for transportation planning are widely used. We created a scorecard tool for Eilat city planners that allows them to characterize, weigh, and prioritize features of transportation planning that contribute to congestion or its alleviation. We produced an Excel version of the scorecard and designed a web platform to house it. These deliverables will be used by the Municipality to adjust their current infrastructure and future plans.
