A METHOD OF ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFECTS OF PARKING POLICY ON TRAFFIC MOVEMENT

This article describes a means of converting the normal output of the transport modelling process 24-hour or 16-hour interzonal traffic flows into demands for parking space and of calculating the effects of alternative parking policies on traffic movement. The procedure attempts to take account of the way parking policy is applied in practice, the type of information upon which the formation of future parking policy is likely to have to rest and the characteristics of parking most likely to remain constant through time. The model described has been developed empirically from travel surveys mainly in Cambridge; more test data are required before the model can be deemed suitable for general application. The worked example, demonstrating the form of the model, illustrates how critical to the effect on traffic movement, particularly at peak periods, is the choice of parking policy. /Author/
