EXTENDED CLEARWAYS - THE ISSUES

With increasing emphasis on improving the efficiency of a given road system, it is being considered in some states to introduce clearways or zones of 'no parking' extending up to twelve or twenty-four hours. Full consideration must be given to the social and economic costs which would be incurred by commercial premises and homes on such clearway routes. A methodology to evaluate these costs is presented. Evaluations were made on two trial routes, and a sensitivity analysis relating the above costs to changes in vehicle speeds is given. Possible warrants and policies are presented for discussion. /Author/TRRL/
