URBAN ROAD USER CHARGING SCHEME DESIGN: A PRELIMINARY SCHEME DESIGN GUIDE

This guide has been prepared by Transport & Travel Research Ltd (TTR), in association with Ian Catling Consultancy (ICC) and Wilbur Smith Associates (WSA). It results from the second stage of a study of urban road user charging (RUC) scheme design principles and policies, undertaken for the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR). The aim of this document is to give initial high level guidance on urban road user charging scheme design issues, to help local authorities who are considering implementing such schemes in UK towns or cities. It is not intended to be all-encompassing or comprehensive, nor to go into detail on specific design issues. Rather, it aims to: (1) act as a checklist on some of the key issues that local authorities need to consider; (2) give brief pointers to key requirements and/or good practice; and highlight available knowledge. DETR intends to produce more detailed guidance material for use by local authorities in due course. This will draw on existing experience, on DETR-funded research studies, and on knowledge that will be gained over the next few months and years from initial local authority RUC schemes and the on-road electronic RUC demonstrations. The guide is divided into seven main sections, each of which covers a number of scheme design issues: (1) introduction; (2) policy principles and objectives; (3) public involvement; (4) major scheme design issues; (5) scheme appraisal; (6) implementation and operational issues; (7) references.
