THE ASSESSMENT OF THE SCOOT SYSTEM IN NIJMEGEN

This paper reports the results of an assessment of the SCOOT (Split Cycle and Offset Optimisation Technique) system in the city of Nijmegen in the Netherlands. Details are given of the observations carried out to determine the effects of SCOOT on travel time, delay, flow, speed, queue length, number of stops, gating, bus priority, environment and management and maintenance. Measurements were made with the existing fixed-time control system (STAR) for 12 days and with the SCOOT system for 12 days. The results show that the effect of SCOOT on traffic was no different to that of the existing control system. Reasons for this are suggested and the future for SCOOT in the Netherlands assessed. For the covering abstract see IRRD 880251.
