This project supports the Countryside Commission's Countryside Traffic Measures Group (CTMG). It aims to develop, through demonstration, good practice guidance on rural traffic management, designed with sensitivity for the countryside environment. Effectiveness of the schemes and measures is being investigated through a before and after monitoring programme of each scheme. Information will be disseminated through published reports, Traffic Advisory Leaflets, articles in technical journals, and presentations to professional audiences.
This study was to provide monitoring support to the Countryside Agency, the public supported the concept of 'Quiet Lanes' - conspicuous urban traffic signs were not wanted in rural areas.
