In this paper we propose a comprehensive method to evaluate alternative projects in transportation network planning. This method has three stages.<br>(1) <i>Analytical description of regional structure</i>, describing the spatial distribution of commercial, industrial and residential activities using factor analysis and cluster analysis.<br>(2) <i>Estimation of accessibility</i>, of each zone using Hansen's concept of accessibility.<br>(3) <i>Evaluation</i>, by calculating the utility of locating activities in each zone before and after transportation network improvement, using the utility function approach. <br>Using this three-stage method, useful insights can be obtained about the general effects of alternative network improvement projects.<br>The method was used on a regional transportation network planning problem and the reliability of the method was examined.
