Dear Cambridgeshire County Council,

Dear Cambridgeshire County Council team,

Thank you for your response. Could you please clarify:

1. As I asked for all risk assessments and only one was sent, presumably this is the only one?

2. What the traffic flow data is exactly? The file seems to have been generated by software from CA traffic who look like they only provide tracking for vehicles. I asked for the cycle track traffic count i.e. pedestrians and cyclists.

Yours sincerely,
Sam Webster

Dear Sam

In response to your questions regarding FOI 955718, I can confirm that the risk assessment you were provided is the only one.

The traffic flow data is cycle flow only, as there is no pedestrian data.
