The City’s traffic monitoring program attempts to survey each one of the permanent surveying sites at least once every three to five years.
Counters are installed for a period of eight days to capture seven full days of data.
Occasionally the surveying equipment fails to record the information correctly and a site is required to be surveyed again for a further eight days.
The City appreciates that the surveying equipment can inconvenience residents however traffic counters cannot be moved further along the street. Locations are chosen to provide comparative data from previous counts and are required to be securely fixed in place.
Residents or mowing contractors can carefully lift the tubes to mow under a section of lawn without affecting the data or equipment.
Damaged equipment or tubes that have come loose can be reported to the City on (08) 9205 8555.
An insurance claim will be required to be lodged with the City’s contractor and contact details can be obtained from the City by calling (08) 9205 8555.
