SPEED/FLOW RELATIONSHIPS IN THE CENTRAL GLASGOW AREA APPLICATIONS

Traffic speeds and flows were observed within the Central Glasgow area "before" and "after" the implementation of a traffic system - known as the "clyderail traffic management scheme" - in July 1976. These were grouped according to different categories of the streets concerned (three categories in total) and to different effective widths within each category. Ten sets of speed and corresponding flow observations then emerged and a speed/flow (curvelined) relationship was obtained for each of them. Furthermore, these relationships were brought into a simplified linear form and reduced to three, by fitting a single formula to the resulting lines within each of the three categories.(a) (TRRL)
