TRIP GENERATION ISSUES FOR LONDON: INTERIM RESULTS FROM THE TRL STUDIES. PAPER PRESENTED AT THE 6TH ANNUAL TRICS CONFERENCE, 28/29 SEPTEMBER 1994

In parallel with the development of PPG13 the Department of Transport commissioned TRL to undertake a programme of trip generation surveys covering major land uses in the London area. It is the interim results from these surveys that are presented in this paper, examining the relationship between land use and transport, and highlighting some of the underlying factors. In this paper the linkages between trip generation characteristics and site-specific attributes for a selection of land uses are examined. Variables such as car ownership, public transport, and parking provision are studied to see how they interact, and what the underlying patterns are. The TRL studies aim to provide comprehensive information, though the sample will not be representative of all the land uses in London. The six types of land use covered are: offices, retail, leisure, industry, warehouse and public buildings. The sample is broadly in line with the current distribution of employment in the different industry sectors. The survey sites have been selected to reflect the different travel characteristics in Central, Inner and Outer London.
