Traffic Volumes- City Centre Bridges Count Data 2007-2010

Annual Traffic counts and turning data for all modes of transport at 26 locations in the city centre This dataset contains the results of the annual traffic counts conducted during the month of May each year, at twenty-six locations were selected along the Liffey Bridges between Heuston Station and the East Link Bridge and Parnell Street and St. Stephens Green. Counts are usually conducted at each location on two separate days and the average of the two counts is used. ''Information is captured on three worksheets; on the first (CTC) is modes of transport captured at 15 min intervals in the following information fields: Car/ Taxi, Lgv, Hgv, Bus, Mc (Motorcyclist), Pc (Pedal cyclist), while the second worksheet has pedestrian surveys.''Also captured in these counts are turning count data, to be read in conjunction with the third worksheet (Site Plan); a turning flow diagram that summarises the turning counts. This gives a graphical representation of these turning movements at the junctions (left, right, straight and so on) at hourly intervals.''This data has been collected for the last four years; it was originally set up the City Council cycle forum in 2007 to establish baseline cycle counts within the canals and measure changes in cycle usage within the city centre. It is also used to analyse pedestrian and vehicle flows in the city centre. These counts are carried out in addition to the canal cordon counts, which are carried out in November each year.''Locations on City Centre Cordon:'1. Wolfe Tone Quay / Frank Sherwin Bridge'2.
