In August 1975, a survey was carried out to investigate the nature and scope of all goods movements in a semi-pedestrianised street in the city centre of Newcastle. In Addition, all shopkeepers in the street were asked for information concerning the delivery of goods to their premises. The results of these studies are presented, and compared with the results of previous surveys elsewhere. Differences in the results are examined critically. The possibility of complete pedestrianisation of the street is looked at and the role of local authorities in controlling the movement of Heavy Goods Vehicles in towns is discussed. Finally an analysis of the delivery of individual commodities to retail premises is given which is more detailed than has so far been reported. /Author/
