Town Council traffic survey

Charlbury Town Council is considering whether changes to the local road network would make our town a quieter, pleasanter place to live and visit. Before we propose any changes, we need a snapshot of how drivers are using the town – where they are driving to/from, and when. So we are conducting a traffic survey. We have chosen three times of day during the school holidays (we did a survey in August) and a school day (Tuesday, 21st September).

We will have teams of people recording data at six locations around town at 7–9 am, 12–2 pm and 4.30–6.30 pm. The locations are Five Ways, Enstone crossroads, Nine Acres/Thames St corner, the station roundabout, Spendlove entrance and the Bull corner.

We have an amazing 25 volunteers so far but we desperately need a few more so we have enough for each junction – the busiest junctions need four volunteers to comfortably collect the data.

So, dear, kind people of Charlbury, could you help us record vehicle movements at 7–9 am, 12–2 pm or 4.30–6.30 pm on Tuesday, 21st September? Please contact Cllr James Styring via this site or on 07792 375423. Thank you.
