      Thanks, Nancy. I’ll be back to you shortly when I see what the committee has to say and can do tomorrow. J

    Happy to help count vehicles on our road

  3. Jeremy says:

    Thanks, Janet will pop round in a day or so.

  4. Rachel says:

    Happy to help but presume the number plate recognition cameras have that data (and from before the bridge closure)?

    • Jeremy says:

      Thanks, Rachel. Yes, you’d think thre ANPR data would be brilliant for this and I think it is. Apparently the Council does not have free access to the data – it may lie with the provider. Sounds very perverse, but have not followed up this hearsay.

    Google is showing that a route through Camden to the south of the city is quicker than the Paragon which is already very slow with traffic.

  6. Jeremy says:

    Camden Road is to the north but your point remains true, having just checked on google maps. Coming from the A46, the recommended route is along the Larkhall-Camden cut-through, and failing that to turn right onto St Saviour’s Road from the London Road and up Claremont Road. The recommended route along the London Road is not even being suggested because it takes five minutes longer.

    Thanks, Janet, Nancy and Rachel and Louise,

    I’ve invited you to contribute to a googlesheet by email. Just nominate which slots you’ll do counting and then enter your results afterwards.

  8. Dave Pippard says:

    I’m up for counting!

  9. Jeremy says:

    Thanks, Dave. Will give you access to the ‘system’, to book a slot and post your results.

    I’ve done two 10 minute audits today at 08:10 and 17:30 – basically nearly 100 vehicles passed in that time. That’s therefore nearly 600 per hour. Looking at the evening peak then its roughly 300 per hour leaving town. Back in 2019 we were getting 207: up by 45%
