Roadside Interview Surveys

Roadside Interview Surveys can be used to determine traffic flows through different areas of the place of interest and can be used to determine future needs in terms of improved road infrastructure, eg bypass. They can also be used in the planning of developments and the effect these would have on the normal traffic flow conditions. Identification of specific routes which are undertaken at different times of the day is possible and is therefore useful when planning traffic calming works. These can be used to determine more detailed information as to type of vehicles using the road, what type of goods are being carried, postcode info on origin and destination vehicle occupancy etc. These surveys are useful to central and local government when planning a major improvement or area wide study on transport needs of vehicle drivers.
