Evaluation of the bus lanes on north east road

In recent times the concept of giving priority to urban transport, and buses in particular, has become a popular method of improving the efficiency and operation of public transport facilities. Whilst there are many ways of granting priority to buses, the use of "with flow" bus lanes has become common both within Australia and overseas. The paper presents the results of a bus lane "before and after" study on a major arterial road which serves the growing north eastern suburbs of Adelaide. The study showed relatively minor changes in traffic operation after the installation of the bus lanes. Perhaps this was not surprising because the bus lane was provided in lieu of a parking lane and did not reduce the number of through lanes for the use of other vehicles.
