ESTIMATING TOTAL ANNUAL TRAFFIC FLOW FROM SHORT PERIOD COUNTS

The total annual traffic flow at a road site is probably the single most important item of data needed in transport studies. In this article a method of estimating this flow from a traffic count of less than 24 hours duration is described. The method is extended to enable an assessment to be made of the merits of repeating a count. The application of the method is discussed in relation to the United Kingdom but it is believed that this method is generally applicable to most countries. This report was presented at the PTRC Summer Meeting at Warwick University, July 1979. (TRRL)
