Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Sinead Winship Methodology We went to Chester to help us understand the problems traffic is causing in the CBD. This relates to the hypothesis 'How can traffic be managed in the city centres?'. While in Chester we completed six tasks, all of which helped us gain a further understanding as to how traffic can be managed. After collecting all of my data I will present it in a number fo different ways including graphs, maps, diagrams and photos. I will then state what I have learnt from each task and what each map/ graph/ photo tells me. The first task I completed was a traffic count. ...read more.

Middle

We measured 100 metres from one point and timed how long it would take for a car to get from one point to another. We avoided places where there was a form of traffic management as vehicles are slower by them and our results would be biased. We did this task to see if traffic was slow in the CBD which would show that traffic management systems were working. The forth task I did was a count of the free, taken and total spaces in two car parks. One was a carpark close to the CBD called Little Roodee and the other one was the Park and Ride near Chester Zoo. ...read more.

Conclusion

*How important is it to keep Chester's city centre traffic free? *How important is this pedestrianised area to you? *For YES to park and ride, was your main reason? *For NO to park and ride what was you main reason? *If Chester City Council introduced charges for bringing private cars into the city centre how would you agree with it? We did this task to find out what peoples views on traffic management are. The final task I did I had to make up myself. I chose to look at where all the tax disks on the cars were bought from. I looked at around fifty tax disks in the Park & Ride and wrote down where they were bought from. I did this task so that I could see where the cars in Chester were coming from. ...read more.

  1. Where is the CBD in Guildford?

    (Shown on my land-use map) The isoline map of the land values also shows that the peak values are within this area. It definitely conforms to the pedestrian flow map that the west end of Guildford has the highest land-values; the peak value towards the west end of Guildford stretches further out than the other peak point towards the North-east of Guildford.

    This is done by simply tallying on a sheet of paper the amount of each type of land use on each site. I will then use this data to create pie charts for each site. By comparing these pie charts, I will be able to answer the key question: are all parts of the CBD similar?

  1. Congestion in Chester

    Personally, I do not think that this would be a sensible option for Chester City council to adopt as the cost to build and public inconvenience outweigh the benefit that using this method would generate. Another solution that Chester City Council has proposed is congestion charges.

    in more detail. In order to do this, we had to sample. For land use, the whole of the C.B.D. could be done. But for pedestrian density and environmental quality, it was decided to choose 30 sites systematically. This meant that each block of shops could be assessed at one site.
