Abstract—The transport planning activity has become more complex, taking into account the increasingly more aspects regarding social and environmental protection. The paper aims to highlight the need for transport planning activity in fundamenting the intervention plan in case of emergency. The transport planning methodology presented in this paper aims to assure the balance between transport demand and supply, both currently and in emergency situations, by simulating traffic flows in a frame of a transport model. The planning process has been applied in a frame of a case study for Pitesti metropolitan area, in which, following the analysis of the level of service relative to value of volume / capacity ratio of the transport network, was recommended the extending of the network with a new bridge over the River Arges and a new connection road between the main transport poles, the cities of Pitesti and Mioveni.
