The progress made in the Nottingham zone and collar experiment for controlling the traffic flow in the city centre across a cordon is reviewed. The control is achieved by installing traffic signals on all radial roads where they cross the collar and adjusting the signal settings to limit the flow. At each set of signals a reserved lane enables buses to bypass the queues. It is said that the park and ride scheme offered as an alternative to private cars has so far been unsuccessful. The controls have not yet been fully tested as they will not be fully operational until autumn 1976 when the computer linked area traffic control will be in operation. /TRRL/
