Normal junction improvement schemes are not possible in York because of its ancient city walls. Without an inner ring road, traffic management methods have been further explored. Before and after monitoring surveys for recently introduced short-term measures are described. The five areas of interest were: movement, effects on trade, environment, attitude and the enforcement and compliance with traffic regulations. A temporary bridge closure for structural repairs, provided more restraint and public transport priority than a management package could. It was shown that motorists chose to travel at a different time producing significant changes or delays at congested junctions. No significant changes in the pattern of bus or cycle use was detected. The modeling techniques described made use of the trafficq model and employed the regnum technique to provide a cost-effective means of data collection. The study showed that the number of car shoppers had decreased, but later evidence suggested that this may only have been a settling-in-effect. (TRRL)
