URBAN GOODS MOVEMENT SPACE ALLOCATION GUIDELINES

Detailed goods vehicle-related data was collected for a range of typical city center land uses. Information acquired included goods vehicle trip generation rates, dwell time patterns, parking patterns, etc. Using this information, augmented by the literature, cost-effective space allocation methodologies were developed for planning for space allocation both on and off-street. Space allocation methodologies have been exercised to provide tables of recommended curbside and off-street goods vehicle space allocation guidelines. This report can assist in the rational, objective provision of the appropriate number of spaces, at the curb or at loading docks, which will minimize total costs.
