TRAFFIC IN TORONTO: 4 - CROSSINGS INTENSITY AND TRAFFIC CIRCULATION

This paper examines crossings intensity and traffic circulation within Metropolitan Toronto. Consideration of crossings intensity (the number of crossings per unit area) facilitates a comparative analysis of delay over an urban area. In particular, crossings intensity are examined as a function of the distance from the city centre. The tendency for traffic circulation is also studied in relation to distance from the city centres. It is demonstrated that both crossings and circulation have measurable and exhibit regular behaviour within an urban area. These quantities provide potentially very useful information to the traffic planner, which could lead to a change in the design of road systems. See also TRIS Nos. 392794, 392990 and 394367. (TRRL)
