PEDESTRIAN AREA EXPERIMENT IN TOULON.

Traffic has increased greatly over the past ten years in France to the point where, not only is there hardly room for increasing traffic but pedestrian paths have been established as a means of improving traffic management. This paper outlines the method of study and realization of "Plans de Circulation" in Toulon. It describes the traffic plan and analysis of the present situation in order to study alternative management schemes in defining traffic control systems, circulation and parking regulations and to do design and layout studies. In regard to the pedestrian, the study intends to identify and locate potential pedestrian areas which could be part of the traffic plan for the short term. The second objective is to study several alternative area schemes and try to implement an experimental area. Maps and a selected bibliography are included.
