Over past decade the amount of directly observed journey time data has increased markedly and a variety of feasible methods for that observation have been introduced. This seminar will present some observation on the nature of the distribution of journey times for routes traversed on motorways and trunk roads. The seminar will look at the characteristics of data obtained by different means and the implications for use of the data. Some more detailed observations will be made about the way journey times are distributed in different time windows and suggest the most effective parameters to select for characterising the performance of the traffic. Patterns in the distribution of these parameters will be presented and their potential usefulness discussed. Finally, ideas about significant traffic patterns can be identified will be discussed.
