Cycling scheme & traffic congestion in Hinckley (2)

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,

This is a new, follow-on request to FOI9561.

In FOI 9561 you have confirmed that in both of the areas I mentioned LCC holds the information in which I am interested. Please therefore (for each of the 2 areas) provide the following for each relevant study (relevant in that they will be used for pre-vs-post comparisons). Clearly it is vital that any conclusions from a comparison are evidence-based and objectively assessed, which is the basis of my request here.

1) The title of the study
2) The purpose (i.e. to measure and demonstrate exactly what)
3) The nature of the data itself (e.g. vehicle speeds, frequency of movement, density etc. )
4) Who undertook the study (LCC staff or contractor & if so whom).
5) What (if any) equipment was needed.
6) The date(s) & duration of the study
7) The locations of the study.
8) The methodology that will ensure any apparent differences pre and post are not just the result of inherent data variability – specifically, what statistical rigour will be applied?

Each point here probably only needs a sentence or two to answer. Note that at this stage I do not require the data itself.

Yours faithfully,

J Newman

Leicestershire County Council
