EVALUATION OF THE SEVERANCE EFFECTS OF A PROPOSED RAPID TRANSIT CORRIDOR

The paper describes a study of potential trip severance and disruption to the residential environment by a proposed rapid transit public transport route through suburbs in Adelaide. The study showed that physical severance can be avoided, and in some places access can be improved, if appropriate route crossings are provided. Evaluation of a number of research methods used in the study suggests that more consideration of the behaviour underlying trip-making will lead to better solutions than simple trip-counting procedures in this and perhaps in other aspects of transport planning. Study data on pedestrian movement around surburban areas have important implications for residential subdivision and associated transport planning. /Author/TRRL/
