REDUCING TRAVEL THROUGH DEMAND MANAGEMENT: A CASE STUDY ON THE ROBERT GORDON UNIVERSITY, ABERDEEN

This paper describes a Transport Impact Assessment undertaken on behalf of the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen who plan to relocate to an edge of town site which will ultimately hold 8000 students. As the infrastructure would be inadequate for the predicted traffic an extensive market research study was undertaken to assess the potential for modal shift and demand management. The constraints of the network are described. The market research study is then outlined and the information gathered summarised with particular regard to trip generation. Findings on the potential for modal shift are discussed leading on to the demand management study itself. The paper concludes by summarising the potential advantages and disadvantages of demand management. For the covering abstract see IRRD 876474.
