Evaluating future transport infrastructure projects is a challenge as it s predicting future traffic demand and tendencies in social-economic development. It also s monetization of factors such as road accidents, air pollution and noise. This paper aimed at presenting the role of traffic simulation software for the evaluation of future infrastructure projects as well as the role of the software in the process of cost-benefit analysis. In this regard, the role of the traffic software at each stage was presented and a conceptual model was developed as a diagram in this paper.
