Background Information: The review of the Road Network User Hierarchy (road classification) is about the way that people and vehicles move around the city. It will consider how roads and streets are classified based on the type of vehicles and traffic that they are used by in the future. Some roads act as the main routes into, around and out of the city and, therefore, carry high levels of all types of traffic from lorries, cars and buses to cyclists and pedestrians. Other more minor roads act as routes that provide access to particular areas of the city. They carry less traffic and are used more by cars, cyclists and pedestrians. Some streets in the city centre have restricted access for motor vehicles to better cater for higher levels of walking and cycling. They are different types of roads and have different uses, so are categorised differently.
