Cycling scheme & traffic congestion in Hinckley

J Newman made this Freedom of Information request to Leicestershire County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Leicestershire County Council

In the Hinckley Times 11/10/17 a “county official” is reported to have said that in Spring 2018 user numbers will be established for comparison with data collected before the scheme was implemented.

What in formation can LCC provide that shows precisely what data and parameters were measured prior to implementation and where can it be found? Clearly for a valid comparison the 2018 exercise will have to exactly mirror the same methodology.

Besides an increase in cyclists the aim was in parallel to reduce traffic congestion. Likewise, what information exists regarding the pre-implementation data used for measurement and where can it be found?

Yours faithfully,

J Newman

Leicestershire County Council
