Traffic Counts


Why do I need to have Traffic Counts done?

Local Councils or Roads Authorities will ask for Traffic Counts to be undertaken for a variety of reasons depending on your type of development.

These may range from required  information gathered as part of a Traffic Impact Assessment to ways to achieve traffic-calming measures.


How long will the Traffic Counts take?

This will be up to the discretion of the Local Authority however, once we undertake the counts, we can usually have the data back to you within 2 working days.


Why should I use Aus Wide Consulting for Traffic Counts?

We currently have the latest electronic equipment for both tube counts and manual counts.

Tube Counts - Traffic is counted by placing rubber hoses on a road or bike path. As vehicles and bicycles travel in either direction over the tubes, the counter records the air pulses. Traffic counting is done mid-block between two intersections to give a total for each direction.

Manual Counts - Our staff conduct manual counts using electronic count boards at signalled intersections, typically during the morning and afternoon rush hours. They collect information for all traffic – vehicular, pedestrian, and cyclist – at the intersection, including left and right turns, and through-movements in every lane.
