Bus punctuality partnerships: guidance for local authorities and operators

Read document description

This guidance has been produced by DfT's Bus Punctuality Working Group, a stakeholder group set up to develop a more effective punctuality regime. It is informed by the experience of local authorities and bus operators around the country and offers a framework which local authorities and bus operators can use to work together to achieve results. It sets out why punctuality and reliability are important, and explains how a partnership approach can help to deliver high standards of punctuality. It contains examples of good practice which are already being used, together with a model which has been developed for use 'off the peg' or which can be adapted according to local circumstances, including a model data sharing agreement.

Traffic Advisory Leaflet 2/11 - Portable Traffic Signals for the Control of Vehicular Traffic

Read document description

This leaflet provides advice on the use of portable traffic signals at road and street works. Detailed advice is already given on the design and use of these, primarily in: - An Introduction to the Use of Portable Vehicular Signals ('the Pink Book') - Safety at Street Works and Road Works – A Code of Practice ('the Red Book') - Traffic Signs Manual Chapter 8. This leaflet is designed to complement these documents by providing a summary of the main requirements. It does not cover portable signal-controlled pedestrian facilities. For advice on these, please see Traffic Advisory Leaflet 3/11: Signal-controlled pedestrian facilities at portable traffic signals. Portable traffic signals might be required as a consequence of road works, or street works. They should not be confused with temporary traffic light signals, which are permanent signals mounted in a temporary fashion.

Traffic Advisory Leaflet 3/11 - Signal-controlled Pedestrian Facilities at Portable Traffic Signals

Read document description

This leaflet is intended to provide advice to those who may be involved in or considering providing portable pedestrian crossing facilities, whether stand-alone or at road works. The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (TSRGD) were amended in 2011 to allow the use of pedestrian facilities with portable traffic signals. Traffic Advisory Leaflet 2/11: Portable traffic signals for the control of vehicular traffic provides advice on the use of portable traffic signals to control vehicular traffic only. Much of that advice is relevant to portable pedestrian facilities, and TAL 2/11 should be read in conjunction with this leaflet. Other advice is given in: - An Introduction to the Use of Portable Vehicular Signals ('the Pink Book'), - Safety at Street Works and Road Works – A Code of Practice ('the Red Book') - Traffic Signs Manual Chapter 8. The advice in this leaflet also supersedes that given in paragraph 1, page 1 of the Pink Book. For the purposes of this leaflet, road works are any works carried out primarily to improve or maintain the highway, such as resurfacing of the road. Street works are any works carried out by statutory undertakers to place or maintain apparatus such as water mains or electricity cables ('undertaker' is defined in the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991). To simplify this leaflet, both road and street works will be referred to as road works. This leaflet only considers circumstances in which works are carried out by statutory undertakers, or permitted by the traffic authority.

Deal or no deal: Can incentives encourage widespread adoption of intelligent speed adaption devices?: Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds (DOP: 4/11)

Read document description

Given the burden of injury, economic, environmental and social consequences associated with speeding, reducing road traffic speed remains a major priority. Intelligent speed adaptation (ISA) is a promising but controversial new in-vehicle system that provides drivers with support on the speed-control task. In order to model potential system uptake, this paper explores drivers’ preferences for two different types of ISA given a number of alternative fiscal incentives and non-fiscal measures, using a stated preference approach.

Puffin Accident Study Report

Read document description

Puffin facilities were developed to replace Pelican crossings at mid-block sites and farside pedestrian signals at junctions. Research has shown that compared to existing pedestrian signal facilities, Puffin facilities can reduce both driver and pedestrian delay at junctions, and improve pedestrian comfort (particularly for older pedestrians and those with impaired mobility). Previous research has also indicated safety benefits. The aim of this study was to quantify the safety benefit.
