Many towns and cities throughout the country have now implemented schemes which wholly or partially close streets or areas to vehicular traffic. This note draws together the experience gained by local authorities in the past five years or so and puts forward ideas that might be helpful to authorities intending to undertake projects of this kind for the first time. Schemes are considered firstly as parts of comprehensive planning, possibly for gradual adoption, secondly as purpose built pedestrian areas and thirdly where there are varying degrees of traffic restraint. Some general points on signing are included and mention is made of special provisions required for e.g. emergency vehicles. /TRRL/
