Utilizing data mining technology, this study proposes a methodology for traffic flow analysis based on toll data. Initially, the OD information pertaining to the analyzed toll station is extracted from expressway toll data. Subsequently, traffic flow analysis is conducted employing time series methods over various temporal scales, including years, months, and days. Comparative assessment of traffic flow across different road sections within the expressway network elucidates variations in traffic flow status. Quantitative analysis serves as the cornerstone for this investigation. Taking the Xi'an Ringo Expressway Toll Station as a case study, this paper delves into the temporal and spatial distribution of traffic flow along the roadway. The deterministic, explosive, and growth-type evaluation indices for the road network provide quantitative metrics for assessing the operational and managerial efficacy of the expressway. Moreover, the establishment of a visualization platform for public service facilitates the dissemination of theoretical frameworks and data-backed insights concerning road traffic flow and road network operations.
