Interactive Speed Survey Map
The Northumbria Safer Roads Initiative (NSRI), in partnership withÂ the Tyne and Wear Traffic and Accident Data Unit (TADU) and Gateshead Councilâ€™s Geospatial Systems (GIS)Â Team have developed an interactive map showing the locations and summary details for all traffic speed surveys that have been carried out across the Northumbria Police Force AreaÂ over the past year.
The map itself shows all the locations around Northumbria where there has been a speed survey conducted within the last year. Â Zooming in on any speed survey location on the map then displays the average speed recorded in both directions at each site (this can be toggled to show the 85th percentile speed by using the radio buttons at the bottom left hand side of the map screen). Â Finally, clicking on any speed survey point gives more detailed information for that site: Â Road name, direction of travel, average daily vehicle numbers, average speed, 85th percentile speed, and the start and end date of the survey.
The majority of this data is sourced from TADU and NSRI’s network of around 580Â automatic traffic counters around Northumbria, and is supplemented by the temporary speed survey data that is provided by individual local authorities (and which is published in the document library on this website). Â It is our intention to eventually display a rolling three year’s worth of speed data on this map, but at the moment we are only displayingÂ data from January 2015 onwards.
