Behavioural Insights Toolkit

Read document description

Behavioural insights are an important component of the Department for Transport’s vision for a transport system that is an engine for economic growth but one that is also greener and safer and improves quality of life in our communities. The Behavioural Insights Toolkit provides a readily digestible and user-friendly guide to those responsible for transport policy and delivery initiatives, including local authorities. The toolkit shows how behavioural insights can be applied in the transport context to achieve policy objectives. The toolkit does not represent mandatory guidance and its use is purely voluntary.

Shared Space Local Transport Note 1/11

Read document description

Shared space is a design approach that seeks to change the way streets operate by reducing the dominance of motor vehicles, primarily through lower speeds and encouraging drivers to behave more accommodatingly towards pedestrians. In the UK, shared space is usually applied to links and minor junctions with the aim of allowing pedestrians to move more freely within the space. This Local Transport Note (LTN) focuses on High Street environments, but many of its principles will apply to other types of shared space.

Signing the Way

Read document description

Great Britain has one of the safest road networks in the world and the quality and clarity of our traffic signs make a significant contribution to this. The Department for Transport has now completed the most significant review of traffic signs for over forty years to ensure that this traffic sign system continues to meet the needs of road users now and in the future. I am pleased to announce that the Department is today publishing the policy document, "Signing the Way", which sets out the findings of the review. This document provides a framework for a new traffic sign system which retains national consistency, but reduces central government involvement in local decisions, reducing costs and giving local authorities the flexibility to respond to local needs. It also sets out our proposals for streamlining the Traffic Regulation Order process which would reduce costs and time. The review recognises that our travel behaviour is changing and that people are being encouraged to cycle and to walk where practical. The traffic sign system needs to reflect these changes and this review will ensure that our traffic signs meet the needs of all road users. Traffic signs also directly affect how much clutter there is on our roads. While road users require traffic signs to undertake their journeys safely and legally, too much signing creates an untidy, unattractive and confusing environment. The review sets out measures to reduce the number of signs on the road and provides advice to local authorities on removing unnecessary signing. The Review requires a major update of the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions and the Department is proceeding with this work as a priority. In the interim, we will deliver changes where possible through the Secretary of State's traffic signs authorisation process.

Management of Electronic Traffic Equipment

Read document description

This Code of Practice is the first document within the UK which establishes a series of good practice policies and procedures, obtained from experts, on how to effectively manage the maintenance of fixed location electronic traffic control equipment. The growth of technology in the highways sector has led to improvements in congestion control and a reduction in carbon emissions. Adoption of the recommendations within this code will help local authorities achieve delivery of high quality services. This code will become the fourth code within the current suite of codes, and will sit alongside Well-lit Highways, Well-maintained Highways and the Management of Highway Structures.
