Lord Mayor Launches Cycle Counter

Posted 7 Oct 2011 to News by Sarah Scannell

We are pleased to announce the recent installation of a Cycle Counter at Grove Road, which was officially launched by the Lord Mayor Andrew Montague on 20th September 2010. The counter displays the number of cyclists that have passed by that day and also gives the cumulative total number of cyclists that have passed since the launch. The data is obtained by nearby detector loops, located in the ground under the cycle lanes, and then passed on to the counters. This information is very useful for traffic planning and pays recognition to the fact that “if it isn’t counted, it doesn’t count”.

The image below shows some of the totals recorded during September.

What do the colours in the graph represent? I imagine the gren is total, but what are the other too? Cars and Bicycles..?

You’re right Colm, the green is the total number of cyclists. The other two colours are a breakdown of the total by direction of approach. The pink bar is westbound cyclists and the orange bar is eastbound cyclists.
