I predict that the amount of traffic will decrease as we go away from the C.B.D because there are no big tourist’s places or big shopping centers. So therefore less traffic will occur.
Methodology: On Wednesday 17th April, we (my class) went to St Albans to collect information for our geography coursework. Before hand in class we organized and studied several different survey’s and charts including rice pots (in and out of St Albans), site recording sheet, traffic and pedestrian information and recording sheet (in and out of St Albans) and 15 copy’s of an environmental quality survey on a scale of 3 = excellent and 0 = poor and a photo record sheet (to record the photos), all of these which we were ready to collect the information in St Albans. We (my class) were all split up into separate groups; each group was given a different area of St Albans to carry out our information. The area to which I was assigned was Victoria Street.
Our group commenced at the Town hall of St Albans and worked our way up Victoria Street on the left hand side of the road. We then walked down the street carrying out our rice pots for every building. Every 75 paces we walked were named as another site. Altogether we had 15 sites and in each site we took record of the traffic and pedestrian sheet, carried out our environmental quality survey, took notes about the site and took pictures of the site.
Once we had completed our 15 sites we then crossed the road so we were on the right hand side to complete the rice pots walking back towards the Town hall. We were then given a single point in our street, from this point we counted the number of pedestrians walking into town and also walking out of the town, we did this for 10 minutes, from 2:25 to 2:35.
