Bluetooth Tracking surveys of N11 in Ireland
|ContRact||Transport Infrastructure Ireland – N11 Study|
|Service||Bluetooth Tracking Origin-Destination with Journey Time, Link Counts and Junction Counts|
|Scale||35 road junctions and a further 18 survey sites over the length of the N11|
|Project Location:||M11/N11 Surveys, South Dublin & Wicklow, Ireland|
The road network linking Dublin to Wexford was historically a slow road with a number of recognised accident black spots along its length. It has been upgraded over many years and is now a dual carriageway all the way from Dublin to Gorey. The road is now safer and carries large volumes of commuter and holiday traffic down the east coast of Ireland.
Link Counts at 18 sites with vehicle classifications of motorcycles, cars, vans, HGVs and buses. Junction Turning Counts were also carried out at a further 35 sites with the same detailed vehicle classifications used for the Link Count data. The final pieces of the jigsaw were provided by Tracsis Bluetooth tracking technology and ANPR. This provided Origin-Destination data for all vehicle types together with Journey Time information.
The surveys had to be carried out at specific periods in order to get a real view of traffic at peak periods for the road network. The flexibility of Tracsis Traffic technology, and the experience of our project managers and technicians meant the surveys could be set up and carried out effectively and efficiently.
Detailed reports included:
- Link Counts for 18 sites for 5 types of vehicle categories
- Junction Turning Counts for 35 sites and 5 vehicle types
- Origin-Destination surveys covering 6 locations covering light and heavy vehicles separately
- Journey Time surveys at 12 points along the M11/N11 corridor at morning peak, inter-peak and evening peak periods
