Long-term Comparative Traffic Data
Colwood's traffic monitoring system provides an ever-growing dataset that provides historical and comparative travel times and speeds on each collection route. The data allows us to understand the normal performance of a route, note anomalies, make adjustments, measure the impact of adjustments, and inform broader transportation plans. Data can be used to guide road and sidewalk improvements, transit upgrades, traffic signal timing and overall traffic modeling. Learn about other transportation initiatives at www.colwood.ca/GoColwood.
