Counting the Cars

Drivers may have noticed the recent appearance of traffic loops in Argyle Road and wondered why vehicle movements are being measured.  The answer is that it’s part of a traffic survey being undertaken at 450 locations by the operator of Heathrow Airport “…to update our transport models which are used for forward planning purposes and for local traffic assessments…”  At least they’re not sizing up Argyle Road for use as a runway!  The survey will also include roadside interviews, so you may find yourself being pulled over for one of those, but you can refuse to participate.  Our thanks to Cllr Lynne Murray for unearthing this information.
