Camden has video-based cycle counters at 24 locations including all the new pop-up cycle lanes
To view 4+ recent weeks of daily counts, select a counter from the list below. To compare with counts for previous weeks, enter a number in the weeks box and click on . Below the daily counts we are now showing hourly counts for yesterday with directions of travel. There’s more info about the counters below the charts.
These are the numbers reported to us via Camden Open Data. Note that all automatic counters are capable of producing anomalies, gaps in the data and errors of classification.
Since late 2020 Camden Council has commissioned a network of Vivacity computer vision-based traffic counters to assist with the planning and monitoring of Camden’s safe cycling network. Data from the counters is available to all via the Camden Open Data platform. We have developed this browser to offer more convenient access to recent and historic daily cycle counts in both tabular and graphical form. Raw data for a selected counter can be copied from the middle column and pasted into a spreadsheet for further analysis.
This is a Beta version of the Browser. Further features can be added in response to questions and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is an interactive map showing the positions and orientations of the Camden Phase 2 counters. It is derived automatically from this Google Sheet which was used to crowd-source additional information about the counters (their compass orientation, required in order to make sense of the count_in and count_out data values).
Another interactive map of the counter sites, hosted at Camden Open Data can be accessed below. To view the counts, click on a dot trio and then roll over each of the 3 dots.[NB. The position of the counter on Kentish Town Road has a small error – it is actually north of the junction with Royal College Street so it captures all the KTR, RCS and St Pancras Way traffic in both directions.]
Phase 1: magnetic counters on Royal College Street
Since 2015 magnetic counters have been installed at two locations on Royal College Street and one on Pancras Road (the latter counter no longer exists). They are still operational and data and annual summaries from them can be viewed on this page.
