Traffic & Speeding Review- MEQ

Original Email:

Dear Department,

I have noticed that there are these black strips along Wynchgate, Winchmore Hill Road, and High Street. What are these for? Are these for simple research or for the future placing of traffic calming measures? Please clarify. They look like the image attached.

Kind Regards,
Cllr. Stephanos Ioannou


Cllr Ioannou,

The black tubes you have seen are part of an automatic traffic counter. A number have been deployed across the Borough to collect information on vehicular traffic; primarily the number of vehicles and speeds. The information collected will be used to inform the development of projects and to provide a baseline for monitoring schemes.

Kind Regards,
