Cycle count & new cycle counters

Cycle count & new cycle counters

Bike Auckland

October also provided a new round of the cycle counter stats (see last page of linked doc) – AT reports almost 8% more cyclists on the October roads and paths counted by the automatic cycle counters than in the same month last year!

The website intended to report in more detail on these trends (and provide counter-by-counter data and other formatted data to the general public) is still being developed though…

Great news also from a recent meeting between ourselves and Auckland Transport / Auckland Council – in addition to the 10 counters already in place in the region, Auckland Transport will be activating 5 new counters in November. The new counters will be reporting on cycling on:

  • Grafton Bridge
  • SH20 Cycleway
  • East Coast Road
  • Dominion Road
  • Lagoon Drive

Update: Existing counters are:

  • Northwestern Cycleway (Te Atatu)
  • Northwestern Cycleway (Kingsland)
  • Upper Harbour Drive
  • Lake Road
  • Tamaki Drive
  • Twin Streams, Henderson
  • Orewa Estuary Path
  • Mangere Bridge
  • Highbrook Drive
  • Great South Road, Manukau Central

Auckland Transport is also committed to further extend this network of counters in the next year after that. If you want to make suggestions on where counters should go, feel free to sound off in the comments below.
