Network analyst: Added cost from line shapefile

Question asked by baggieboy on Nov 12, 2014

I have a network dataset (a road network), and require a matrix of Cost Distances between many points, which works well.

 

I have now added a line shapefile (representing rail lines). I wish to use it to add cost when a rail line is crossed.

 

But of course as a line shapefile I am only offered the chance of restriction or scaled cost - but I wish to add a certain value when the rail line is crossed. I think maybe I need to use the 'calculate locations' toolbox to locate the polyline (rail line) on the network?

 

Any advice gratefully received.

 

I am using Arcmap 10.1 (advanced license).

 

Thanks

John
