Traffic counts on streets in Abbeyhill and Easter Road areas 2010-2018

Chris Byrne made this Freedom of Information request to City of Edinburgh Council

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

We're waiting for Chris Byrne to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear City of Edinburgh Council,

I would like to request information which the Council holds on vehicle counts undertaken in the in Abbeyhill and Easter Road areas between 2010 and 2018.

I am aware that, from time to time, the Council Roads Dept put down traffic counters across certain stretches of road, to monitor the number of vehicles travelling a particular route. This is often done prior to any changes to traffic regulations in the area, imposing any traffic restrictions, or stopping up of streets, roadworks, etc.

If the Council holds traffic count totals for the following streets I should like to request them:

Abbeyhill
Abbey Lane
Abbeymount
Abbey Street
Albion Road
Alva Place
Brunswick Road
Easter Road south of Albion Road
Horse Wynd
London Road west of Meadowbank Terrace
Meadowbank Terrace
Montrose Terrace
Montgomery Street
Spring Gardens
Regent Road
Rossie Place
Royal Park Terrace

I am requesting the information for the years 2010-2018. I am primarily interested in the number of vehicles per day using particular streets, but if there is variation depending upon the day of the week, time of day, etc. this would also be interesting.

Please note I am aware that traffic count data for the A1 London Road is published by the DfT, but I understand the last actual count was in 2009, and subsequent figures are estimates. I am seeking any data on counts which may have been conducted by the City of Edinburgh itself.

If the data are partial or incomplete I should still like to receive them. If the data have already been published somewhere please send a link to an online source where the data may be obtained.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Byrne

City of Edinburgh Council
