ROUTES FOR PEOPLE - AN EXPERIMENT IN RURAL TRANSPORT PLANNING

The report discusses the project known as routes for people in which the national park and Derbyshire CC developed a plan to overcome traffic flow problems. Such problems occurred in areas where local industry and tourist traffic caused congestion in places where efforts had to be made to conserve the natural landscape. The project showed how integrated route management could help solve traffic congestion problems once a hierarchy had been defined. Road improvements and advisory signing confined heavy goods vehicles to a-class roads, while a scenic route was set up to attract the leisure motorist. For cyclists, walkers and horse riders a series of routes was selected from the existing network of public paths and lanes. /TRRL/
