Context

Another solid stack of paperwork in this extended series covering a study on Ringway 3 and the North Orbital Road to the north and north west of London. This one is heavy on abstract traffic flow forecasts and contains a fairly uncoordinated jumble of other things too. My notes suggest that "a lot of this is bobbins".

It contains, for example, a 1969 report by Freeman Fox (the consulting engineers carrying out the study) titled "Mathematical Models in Urban Transportation Planning" that I refused to even open.

Contents of note

  • Some detail on alternative ideas for NOR, including predicted traffic flows for different scenarios, some joining R3 at Navestock and others veering away to the east to terminate at Chelmsford.
  • Forecast traffic flows at Denham, which illustrates how problematic this area was.
