IMPLEMENTING TRAFFIC AND ROAD SAFETY ENGINEERING PROGRAMS

This paper was addressed to the joint meeting of ARRB and the Institution of Engineers, Australia, Session 2. The paper covers the implementation of a number of functionally separate traffic engineering programs, mainly in London. It indicates how these programs can be used to implement or formulate policies and how they interact with elected decision-makers who take strategic and local issues into account. For each project area covered experience is given regarding organisation, financial and staff needs, the rate of progress that can be achieved and any future trends. The programs cover computer control of traffic signals, traffic signal installation and maintenance, sign posting, speed limits, parking control, road accident analysis and implementation of remedial measures, pedestrian crossings, bus lanes and environmental management to control unwanted traffic and provide better conditions for pedestrians (A).
