What do you consider to be an appropriate degree of saturation, when considering the effect of development on existing road junctions?

Will any junctions be operating over capacity in the end state? Will any be far over capacity? In both cases, which ones?

Journey times and the performance of corridors and networks provide a more detailed measure of the impact of traffic schemes rather than degrees of saturation at individual junctions. There are no hard and fast rules on saturation, although clearly it is a key consideration for any scheme.

The criterion for the Brent Cross regeneration is that there should be no detriment to network performance as a result of the development. The relevant highway authorities will test this as part of the approval of detail designs and modelling.
