The purpose of this study was to provide the client with a traffic study that provides information on the current traffic flow in the area where the company plans to install its facility, facilitating the decision making process. The current state of the traffic was analysed by hourly, daily and monthly sections. A prognosis of future evolution was also made.
The study was carried out in two phases:
- The first phase consisted of field work, in which a visit to the area was made to evaluate the area and determine the locations for the gauging equipment. Data collection was carried out through the installation of a vision camera at the roundabout intersection as well as the installation of two radar ATC surveys.
- In the second phase, the data collected in the fieldwork phase were processed and analysed, and the historical databases of permanent gauging stations in the area were consulted, in order to be able to establish a traffic model that represents the future trend in the area.
