IntroductionThis chapter is concerned with the effects on traffic as a result of implementation of URUC. Traffic impacts are important in the monitoring the achievements of a particular traffic restraint policy and in the ultimate evaluation (Chapter 15) of whether objectives (Chapter 2) have been achieved.
In this chapter, by traffic impacts we mean understanding of the data following implementation of the scheme on
• changes in traffic flows overall, by mode and by location
• changes in traffic flows by time of day
• changes in speed or delay by location.
Analysis of this data enables an understanding of the potential changes in underlying behaviour such as travelling to new destinations as well as suppressed trips (trips not made due to the charge).
