TRAFFIC Monitoring Strips - VOLUME + SPEED - Various Roads in CROYDON, Autumn 2017

Nyron Johnston made this Freedom of Information request to Croydon Borough Council

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

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Croydon Borough Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Croydon Borough Council,

Many side roads in Croydon had two rubber strips placed across them for a week or so, with a device at the kerb.

It is assumed these were collecting traffic data, volume and speed - please confirm?
Was there any specific purpose for this data collection?
Presumably the devices are live from installation until removal - please confirm / explain?

Please provide an XLS listing of each of the locations that were involved.
This to include
ROAD NAME + LOCATION in the road
POST CODE
GPS COORDINATES
DATE + TIME OF INSTALLATION
DATE + TIME OF REMOVAL
DATE + REASON if any incident / action occurred during the period

How is this data collected and processed?
Does it distinguish between types of vehicle, notably number fo wheels and whether pedal or motor cycle?

When and where will the full data results be available?

Yours faithfully,

Nyron Johnston

Dear Information,

Thank you for the data.

The dates and times are shown as a single number, eg 43048, 42986.
What are these in normal date and time format - how are they converted?

I assume that a single direction, eg N, means north only.
Where a direction is shown as NS, for example, does this mean both north and south, and similarly does NWSE mean both NW and SE directions?

For Area 3, it says "Survey 00:00, 11.12.2017 - 00:00, 17.12.2017".
Does this mean the survey only included the 6 days 11.12.2017 to 16.12.2017 inclusive?

The spreadsheet for Area 5 has no end date data.
Can this be corrected please?

For Area 4, only 101 out of 231 locations have full data provided.
Can this be corrected please?

You say "The ATR devices are installed and turned on for the duration of the survey and turned off and removed from site at the end of the survey".
Part of the purpose of this FOI Request was to understand the process of installation and removal.
Clearly not all devices in Area 3 were installed at midnight, for example.

Please explain the process.
Were devices for example in Area 3, installed during the day of 10.12.2017, and set to start at midnight at the end of that day, and switch off at midnight at the end 16.12.2017, being then removed during 17.12.2017 - or did the process take more than one day?

Why was the requested post code data omitted?

"Full results will be available April 2019 when all after study data has been received".
How will full after data be available then if Area 5 only goes 20 that month?

Yours sincerely,

Nyron Johnston
