Speed Survey Data for the Edinburgh 20 mph Scheme.

kal_bkp_bk20137492

Below is an update on the data the Council holds in relation to the 20 mph scheme – including a number of streets in my Ward. Keep in mind these are the average speeds, so some vehicles will be going faster. 

 

Speed surveys were undertaken by the 20mph team, both before and after the implementation of new 20mph speed limits, at 82 locations (66 new 20mph streets and 16 streets where a 30mph speed limit had been retained) as part of the pre-planned monitoring programme (the summary of these is not included in the attachment). 

In addition, two further batches of monitoring surveys have been undertaken by the road safety team following the implementation of the citywide 20mph roll out. These covered 198 more locations, where concerns about perceived non-compliance with the 20mph limits had been raised by members of the public, elected members and council officers. We also have a third batch under preparation, currently consisting of 67 locations, where surveys will be undertaken in spring 2020.

The locations and results of the surveys undertaken in Batches 1 and 2 can be found below. The Batch 3 table lists lists the 67 locations to be included in Batch 3. Each traffic survey recorded all vehicle movements, 24 hours a day, over a 7 day period and therefore the full results for each survey include recorded speeds for thousands of individual vehicles. The resultant size of the data files mean that it is not practical to circulate the full results of each survey nor to publish this information on the Council’s website. We have therefore provided the average free-flow speeds and traffic volumes recorded at each location. 

The Committee report can be viewed here.  Following the Committee, it became apparent that, due to an administrative error, the appendix did not contain an exhaustive list of all streets about which concerns had been raised. This has now been rectified, and all streets that have been brought to our attention, from 2016 onwards, should now be included within the 3 batches listed.  

On streets where an average speed of above 24mph has been recorded, the Council’s Road Safety team will carry out an investigation to determine what additional measures are required to support the reduced speed limit.

 Please note that the traffic surveys listed in the attached are those that have been specifically carried out by the road safety team following the 20mph roll out, at locations where compliance concerns have been raised. If you request a traffic survey, you may be advised that one has already been undertaken recently for another purpose and, in this case, we will share the results of that survey with you. To ensure the best use of our resources, unless there has been a significant infrastructural or environmental change, we will not re-survey a location if it has been surveyed within the last 3 years.
