This paper describes the results of the initial stage of a project being undertaken by the Traffic Authority of New South Wales, aimed at developing reliable methods for predicting the traffic generating and parking demand characteristics for different land uses. The paper sets down the predictive equations developed for four land uses:- shopping centres; office blocks; factories; licensed clubs, and concludes that reliable equations have been developed in relation to person trip generation and parking demand, but that the prediction of vehicle trip generation is made difficult by the variability of mode split/car occupancy at different locations. The paper finally canvasses the need for better data in relation to these aspects and also in relation to the variation of traffic generation and parking demand with time. (TRRL)
