Traffic in Historic Town Centres

Report 30

 

Where pedestrians and cars have to share streets in busy town centres, not only should the number of vehicles be reduced to the minimum, but pedestrians should also have priority over vehicles.  New ways should be found to reduce the speed of vehicles, to walking pace where necessary, and to reduce the need for physical traffic measures and signs.

This report considers working practices in this country and on the continent.  It highlights a need for government departments to work more closely together and identifies some areas where changes would assist in achieving both conservation and traffic objectives.

Although some aspects of this document are now out of date, it remains helpful to reflect on the historical perspective in seeking to move forward.

Manual for Historic Streets published in 2008 reflects further on the changes advocated in this document.

Bus-based Park & RideReport 48

In 1993 the Forum produced its first Park & Ride Good Practice Guide in response to widespread interest in the potential benefits of bus-based Park & Ride systems in our historic towns. These towns were among the first to introduce out-of-town parking provision, with cheap and frequent public transport links to the centre.

Since 1993 the implementation of Park & Ride has developed apace, and there are now at least 35 towns and cities operating over 80 year-round systems.

Historic Core Zones Project Review

Report 53

Managing traffic in historic towns is an issue which has been close to the heart of the Forum and its members for a number of years. Back in 1994 the Forum worked in partnership with The Civic Trust to publish documents which highlighted the impact signs and lines were having on our historic environments. The Forum's Historic Core Zones Report was born in the mid 1990s with the backing of the Department for Transport, English Heritage and The Civic Trust. The projects in Bury St Edmunds, Halifax, Lincoln and Shrewsbury have demonstrated that our heritage and traffic can live side by side and the Historic Core Zones Project published in 1999 illustrates this.

The four projects have now had a chance to stand the test of time and we can reflect on the successes and failures of the initiative and draw some conclusions. This review report is the result of close working between the Forum and the Department for Transport and is a follow up to the 1999 Project Report. The four examples provide a pallet of measures which we believe can be applied to all historic towns where such issues arise. It demonstrates that there is another way!

Historic Core Zones Project Review

Report 46

Signs, lines, humps and bumps - we need them to control traffic, but they often spoil the appearance of our most treasured town centres and historic places.

For a number of years, the Forum has advocated a better approach to the design of traffic measures - and we have had some success. With the Forum's involvement, the DETR published Traffic Advisory Leaflet 1/96, 'Traffic Management in Historic Areas', which encouraged design sensitivity in the implementation of traffic measures. However, the centrepiece of our work has been the Historic Core Zones (HCZ) project.

The HCZ schemes in Bury St Edmunds, Halifax, Lincoln and Shrewsbury exemplify these aims.
