Transport Data Insights

Annual Traffic Monitoring Reports

The CCC Policy and Insight team produce an Annual Traffic Monitoring Report which summarises traffic trends across the county based on our annual traffic survey data. You can find the Traffic Monitoring Reports in our document library in the “Transport & Traffic” section. You can view the locations of our annual traffic surveys here.

Quarterly Transport Data Updates

The CCC Policy and Insight team also produce a quarterly transport trends update for the Greater Cambridge area. These quarterly updates use data collected by the Council and also make use of data provided by local partner organisations, as listed below. The updates are intended to provide an indication of how travel changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and whether travel patterns are continuing to change.
