Oxfordshire Traffic Survey


These men were doing a traffic survey at the Radley Road roundabout. Its part of the Oxfordshire Traffic Survey.

Other surveyers have been going round to randomly selected houses, asking people to fill in a 24 travel form including all their journeys - however small with lots of details: the how, why, when.

"...The information will be used in developing a Transport Model which will be used to plan and hopefully improve future transport requirements in the area..."

I see the road planners are now using words like 'hopefully'. We have learned in Abingdon that transport modelling is an inexact science.
