The capacity of a city centre is determined by the width of the streets leading to the centre. The automobile traffic generated in a city centre again is determined by the number of parking spaces in the centre. The capacity of a street is the maximum number of cars which, under ideal conditions, can pass a section of the street in one hour. In all cities there is a growing need for increase of the area of shops and offices, but due to the fact that convenient parking spaces cannot always be built, it is often better to site new shopping areas and offices outside existing cities. /TRRL/
