MEASURING TRAFFIC SPEEDS IN LONDON

Traffic speeds in London have been monitored regularly and consistently for the last 25 years. The overall results are taken as an indicator of the change in road congestion over the period. Disaggregated results point to the areas where congestion is greatest as a guide to targeting possible remedies. The method is being developed continuously and the survey coverage is due to be extended to include major urban areas outside London during 1993. The method employed in these surveys is a derivation of the general approach developed by Wardrop,JG and Charlesworth,G (1954). The theory of the moving vehicle method, is given in an appendix.
