Cross Faifley Safely: a Longitudinal Study of the Effects of Traffic Calming

Completed       Start date April 2000      End date October 2001


This study, led by Dr David Morrison, Greater Glasgow NHS Board, investigated the health effects of physical traffic calming measures, e.g. speed bumps and zebra crossings, on a main road running through a residential neighbourhood in Glasgow. A postal questionnaire was sent to local residents before and after the implementation of the traffic calming measures, and counts of pedestrians numbers also took place. Following the implementation of the scheme residents reported less traffic nuisance and more pedestrians used the main road.
