Vehicle speed and volume surveys, or ATC surveys (Automatic Traffic Counter) are the most popular survey that we undertake. We use the latest Metrocount Vehicle Classifier units and software. These types of survey use two rubber tubes laid across the carriageway connected to the Metrocount data logger, usually for a period of 7 days. Data outputs include vehicle speeds, vehicle classification, vehicle volume and vehicle direction. Data is presented in a variety of ways, with as much detail as required, right down to the exact time of each individual vehicle if necessary.
We will work with you to understand exactly what data you require and can then produce bespoke data presentation, ensuring the reports focus on what is most important for you. Data is collected for a variety of reasons, including for local authorities to monitor network usage or identify vehicle speeding issues, highway designers to inform design speed or visibility criteria when designing highway improvement schemes and enforcement authorities to monitor speed limit compliance.
