IN RURAL AREAS

OP HET PLATTELAND

Characteristics of the road network in rural areas are presented: length, vehicle categories, traffic safety and traffic concentration. It is shown that a detailed traffic survey for heavy transport on rural highways is required. Further study is needed into the influence of the land use, agricultural vehicles and the weekend on the number of equivalent axle loads on rural highways. Criteria for the determination of highway capacity and the determination of traffic flow are discussed. (TRRL)
