In the course of the Telematics implications Programme Transport of the European Commission Fourth Framework Research Programme much attention is devoted to evaluation and demonstration. This report is part of the DACCORD project TR1017, devoted to the development and application of co-ordinated traffic control in freeway corridors. The report presents an evaluation plan for the Fourth Framework programme DACCORD. An extensive methodology has been applied to prepare a systematic and comprehensive evaluation plan. It contains an analysis assessment objectives, specification of performance indicators enabling evaluation at distinct levels of assessment (i.e. technical level, user-acceptance, impact analysis, and socio-economic assessment) and a description of various tools for validation. The plan has been developed to be site-independent to a large extent, thereby maximising the potential for cross-comparison, by proposal of common verification and demonstration plans for distinct sites. Additionally, the evaluation plan enables harmonisation of results from other European ATT-projects.
