To create ps map with  line width based on number of travelers you can use :

# blue color stripe
vector  road.6-9
 cwidth 0.001       # 1 point ~ 1000 in category 
 ref left                 #  justification => direction from start to end of line
 color blue
 label   Number of workers (1pnt~1000 workers)       # legend label
 lpos  1

# black outline
vector  road.6-9
 coffset  0.001
 color black
 width 1
 lpos 1
