Abstract

We will discuss models for vehicular traffic flow on networks. The models include both the Lighthill-Whitham-Richards (LWR) model and Follow-the-Leader (FtL) models.
The emphasis will be on the Braess paradox in which adding a road to a traffic network can make travel times worse for all drivers. 
In addition we will present a novel proof how FtL models approximate the LWR model in case of heavy traffic.
