A major research project has been completed by the Traffic Authority of New South Wales, the aim of which was to develop reliable methods for predicting the impact of particular land uses on traffic conditions. This report summarises the results of the analysis at the thirteen land uses studied; office blocks, factories, licenced clubs, shopping centres, fast food restaurants, motels, service stations, recreation, car sales and spares, car accessories and tyres, warehouses, road transport terminals, hotels. For each of these land uses, a detailed report has also been written. These are titled "land use traffic generation - data and analysis" reports 1-13. They deal in more detail with the results, give examples of use of the models, graph the equations together with prediction intervals and also give full listings of the data. The surveys gathered information on the following important factors: 1) the peak vehicular flows generated by the development and the time of day at which these peaks occur, 2) the vehicular flow produced by the development at the time of peak flow on the adjacent street system, 3) the parking provision necessary if the parking demand is to be met without constraint.
