Cheltenham Traffic Plan - Traffic Data

A baseline assessment of the pre-CTP traffic flows on a range of roads across Cheltenham was collected in early November 2015 for two weeks, using GCC’s in-situ fixed Automatic Traffic Counters (ATCs) and additional traffic volume surveys to cover other residential routes which may experience displacement effects.

The timing of the data collection was undertaken in line with Department for Transport TAG unit M1.2.

The fixed Automatic Traffic Counters sites used:

  • A4019 Poole Way south of Swindon Road
  • A46 St. Johns Ave north of Albion Street
  • A435 High Street east of St. James Street
  • A435 London Road west of Keynsham Road
  • A46 St Georges Road east of Royal Well Road
  • A46 Imperial Square at junction with Rodney Road
  • Ambrose Street north of Knapp Road
  • Rodney Road north of Imperial Square
  • A46 Albion Street west of St. Johns Road
  • Gloucester Place
  • Winchcombe Street
  • A46 North Place
  • Wellington Street
  • Bath Street
  • Clarence Street 
  • St George Place
  • A46 Royal Well Road

The additional traffic volume surveys were carried out for period of two weeks in early November 2015. The location of the residential additional survey sites were:

  • Monson Avenue
  • Clarence Square (fixed counter installed in 2017)
  • All Saints Road
  • Fairview Road
  • Bayshill Road
  • College Road
  • St. George’s Street
  • High Street
  • St. James’ Square
  • Imperial Square (southern side)
  • Montpellier Spa Road

An additional fixed site has subsequently been installed on Winchcombe Street South, to monitor flow progressing northbound on Rodney Road / Winchcombe Street
