    • About the Edition

      The opening of the M25 motorway (freeway) around Greater London in the late 1980s resulted in traffic volumes that far exceeded forecasts. The British government commissioned this study to determine whether the construction of new major roads results in additional trips that were not being made previously. The report concluded that in congested areas there are many extra trips that people would make if their routes were faster. The report cautions that releasing this pent-up demand in one area could cause problems in other parts of the roadway system, and suggests some ways to quantify the latent demand.

Advisory Committee on Trunk Road Assessment. Induced demand – related to latent demand and generated demand – is the phenomenon that after supply increases, more of a good is consumed.

This is entirely consistent with the economic theory of supply and demand; however, this idea has become important in the debate over the expansion of transportation systems, and is often used as an argument against increasing.

Abstract The purpose of this report is to address the question whether new or improved trunk roads induce extra traffic. Document History This. The current UK Highways Agency CCTV system is called 2nd Generation CCTV.

This CCTV system has been produced from a set of specification developed by the Highways Agency, to allow it to effectively monitor traffic on England motorways and trunk roads. The network currently includes over cameras operated from 7 regional control centres.

The class of the road determines which level of government administers it. The highest roads will generally be owned, operated, or at least regulated (if privately owned) by the higher level of government involved in road operations; in the United States, these roads. These will increase traffic volumes and GHG emissions – as demonstrated by the robust scientific evidence presented in the SACTRA report which concluded that new roads generate new traffic.

The design requirements for trunk roads are set out in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB). MfS only applies formally in England and Wales.

The policy, legal and technical frameworks are generally the same in England and Wales, but where differences exist these are made clear.
