If Q vehicles travel in this period, the total carriageway space required = Q[0-87/4*/(68-0-13K2)] and if the fraction of carriageway available for this type of movement in the period is J, given t h a t / i s the fraction of space allocated to roads, then the total available area for movement =JfA and β = (78-0·15Κ 2 ) JfAK Smeed found values of J ranging, from 0*22 at Maidenhead to 0-46 at Leicester, and values of Q\fAh of 12, 24, 30-5 and 32 for Edinburgh, Birmingham, London and Glasgow, respectively.
