Hawley Road Traffic Monitoring Survey Begins

Traffic logging equipment has been installed and paid for by the Hawley Green Day Nursery to monitor traffic flows on Hawley Road at the Hawley Green junction. The equipment will log both vehicle movements and also their speed using the two pickup lines installed on the road surface. This will continue for a 1 week period.

Currently the opportunity exists to compile a traffic profile under “worst case” conditions whilst Hawley Road is subject to 2 peak and simultaneous traffic loads from:

  1. The return of the school run morning and afternoon traffic loads after the return from the summer holiday period
  2. Increased through traffic loads generated by the vehicles avoiding the current Meadows Roundabout improvement works

The independent survey data collected will be reviewed to establish a traffic profile and to identify any potential junction safety issues.
