TRL PPR 091 Guidelines for safe and effective vehicle routing

Read document description

Driver information systems have the capability to improve the operation of traffic on roads when well designed. Conversely, poorly designed systems may distract drivers or provide inappropriate assistance resulting in a deterioration in travelling conditions, potentially both in terms of safety and efficiency. The Department for Transport commissioned TRL to develop guidelines for the development and assessment of efficient routing within Dynamic Route Guidance (DRG) systems. In-vehicle route guidance systems calculate a route between the origin and desired destination and provide turn-by-turn directions to the driver. Dynamic Route Guidance systems are those guidance systems that can re-optimise a route in response to information about adverse traffic conditions whilst the vehicle is being driven along the route. This report presents the guidelines developed in that project. The principle target audience for this document is the Product Responsible Organisation, that is, the entity with authority to establish a new, or change an existing, product specification. This responsibility includes testing and verification of design performance for the DRG product and also includes compliance with all applicable regulations.

Bus Stop Design Guide

Read document description

This Bus Stop Design Guide has been jointly produced by Road Service and Translink. The main purpose of this Design Guide is to present current best practice in relation to accessibility at bus stops. The document outlines requirements that meet the needs of bus users and, the changing profile of the Northern Ireland bus fleet with the introduction of low floor buses.This guide is intended for use by all types of professionals involved in the planning, design and provision of bus stop infrastructure so that good practice can be applied consistently across Northern Ireland. Indeed, one of the main themes behind this guide is that the bus stop is viewed as a holistic environment rather than just somewhere for a bus to stop. The implementation of the initiatives contained in this strategy will, over the strategy period, make a significant contribution towards the achievement of the “vision” for transportation contained in the Regional Development Strategy for Northern Ireland 2025 (Shaping our Future).
