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.
