The Rees Jeffreys Road Fund (RJRF) has commissioned an ambitious two-year study of major roads in England with a horizon of 2040. There are seven topics of interest, and the first topic of interest has two tasks, one of which (Task 1B) is to identify network users and their characteristics.
The RJRF Study Team needs a comprehensive picture of the nature of usage of major roads in England – who and where the users are, and what sort of journeys they are making.
Bringing together data from National Road Traffic Estimates and the National Travel Survey, this report
• Explanations of the patterns of use of different types of user.
• Identification of the factors that may be used to define the nature and extent of roads that could be
classified as forming part of a newly defined Major Road Network (MRN).
• Analysis of usage of the SRN in England by region, road type, vehicle type, journey purpose and length.
