Annual Cycle Monitoring counts next week

This email is to advise you that the third annual regional cycle monitoring count will be taking place next week on Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th (with rain postponement days  the week after-17th, 18th, 19th . If you see people taking a greater-than-usual interest in you cycling, they are likely counting you!

Waitakere counts will take place on Tuesday 10th (or Tuesday 17th if wet on the 10th). We have 14 site locations in Waitakere.  The data is used by councils for funding applications and planning and also by ARTA, the ARC and by the NZ Transport Agency. You may also be interested to know that here in Waitakere we recorded a 15% increase in cycle movements between the 2006 and 2007 counts. I am very hopeful that we will see another increase this year. Fingers crossed for conducive cycling weather!

The cycle counts are conducted manually by Gravitas Research. Give the surveyors a wave if you see them.

Safe and happy cycling.
