Traffic Calming: An East London Case Study

Traffic calming and lower driving speeds can reduce congestion, as defined by time spent in traffic queues. This paper describes the work undertaken as part of the Government-commissioned study of traffic options in east London in the late 1980s. Two case studies are highlighted, one residential area affected by through traffic, and a main urban mixed-use street. To read more, see the pdf link to the conference paper.
