The overall objective of the R6017 research programme is to develop a low-cost urban traffic and transport database system, which can be used to:
monitor trends in travel and traffic patterns and characteristics, and associated performance of traffic network and transport operations, including environmental and safety aspects
identify specific traffic and transport problems
provide basic data for transport project appraisal and impact evaluation
This report sets out a sepcification for such a database, based on work undertaken in Ghana in association with the Ministry of Transport and Communications.
