Requesting traffic counting data from Willis St between Mercer and Chews Lane

Hugh Davenport made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington City Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Hugh Davenport

Dear Wellington City Council,

I notice that you have installed a few of those traffic counting devices around town recently. What I mean by that is the two cables that go across the road, and attach to a metal box on one side. I understand that this "counts" traffic going over the two cables. I am unsure how this data is stored, so please work with me to clarify my request to get the information I want.

I am hoping that this might record the following information:
- Date
- Time
- Direction of travel
- Speed of vehicle
- Width of vehicle
- Length of vehicle?

I would be interested in those fields. If they don't exist, but similar information exists, then please contact me here to clarify. If only the raw data exists, then I would like to request that, but I would prefer not to deal with the raw data directly.

For the timeframe, please include all data retrieved from the current device. If it is still present when the LGOIMA is due and the data can't be retrieved, then just wait until the device removed and can get the data off.

I would also be interested in any similar device data for that location over the years. If it is not substantial, can I please get the same data for all the times these devices have been installed at that location (or close to it), otherwise just a list of dates where such a device has been installed.

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Davenport

Hello Hugh,

Thank you for your patience with this.

At the time of the request, the collation of the information for the relevant road user counter equipment was not complete. It is now, however we are waiting for the analysis to be applied to the data so that we can send it to you in a form that can be readily understood.

I am holding this job open and will provide you with the information as soon as I get it.

Kind regards

Hello Hugh,

I've checked in with our infrastructure team on this. They have advised that the 'count tubes' are still in place. As such, we won't be able to get the results at the moment.

We are still working to get the information and will send it to you as soon as we are able to do so.

Kind regards
