As a result of a long standing and well established partnership with an industry leading research laboratory and software company, ATR were commissioned to undertake a study of cycle behaviour and cycle dispersion rates at 30 signalised junctions of varying size and characteristics across London.
This opportunity provided us with a completely new set of challenges as it was a unique type of study and one that hadn’t really been done previously. This meant that pre-survey communication with the client team was crucial to ensure that the requirements were fully understood and that expectations from both sides were properly managed.
Due to the specific survey requirements and the need for the highest quality video footage it was deemed necessary for us to utilise our ANPR cameras and for these to be set at the highest picture quality setting. In addition, and in order for the required cycle movements both upstream and downstream of each junction to be observed, precise camera locations were agreed with ATR and the client prior to the survey commencing. Furthermore the client attended site and oversaw the installation of cameras at each junction to ensure that they were happy with the camera views.
This attention to detail, thorough communication from start to finish and excellent working relationship between ATR and the client helped to ensure the survey ran smoothly and provided this unique data set to be used and presented to TfL as part of an ongoing cycle safety scheme.
