This paper reviews the progress that has been made over the last
half-century in modeling and analyzing the growth of transportation
networks. An overview of studies has been provided following five
main streams: network growth in transport geography; traffic flow,
transportation planning, and network growth; statistical analyses of
network growth; economics of network growth; and network science.
In recognition of the vast advances through decades in terms of explor-
ing underlying growth mechanisms and developing effective network
growth models, the authors also point out the challenges that are faced
to model the complex process of transport development.
