Working in partnership with one of our long-standing and well established private sector clients, ATR were commissioned to undertake a large ATC and link count survey which consisted of approximately 70 Automatic Traffic Counters and 25 link count locations spread across the county of Hertfordshire.
Not only did the geographical spread of the sites present a challenge during the two week survey period but in addition, it was deemed necessary after discussions with the local highway authority that Stop/ Go boards would be required as a form of traffic management at every site, regardless of road speed or classification of highway. The introduction of these Stop/ Go boards for each team meant that it was going to take considerably longer than normal to install, check and remove all counters.
Nevertheless, our highly experienced and dedicated team worked tirelessly to ensure all counters were installed and up and running as quickly as possible. With checks on all counters undertaken once per seven day period, in accordance with our standard procedures, the survey went well despite some of the counters having to be left down for additional days due to damage to some the tubes in order to ensure a full day data set was collected and issued to the client.
