The City gathers traffic count data to:
- Allow residents to see traffic volumes in their areas
- To assist developers planning new projects
- To study traffic impact on neighbourhoods
Each year, traffic counts are conducted in different areas of the City. Two basic types of traffic counts are conducted each year:
- 24-Hour Station Counts measure traffic volume at a location over a 24 hour period.
- Intersection Turning Movements count the movement of vehicles in an intersection.
Ways to Acquire Traffic Data
Daily Traffic Volume Map
The Daily Traffic Volume Map (PDF) shows a summary of average traffic volumes in Coquitlam.
Traffic Volume Data System
Detailed traffic count data is available on the Traffic Volume Data System.
The default map shows the average 24 hour traffic volumes. The Detail page shows the counts in a table for each day. Hourly volumes are shown by clicking on the eye icons beside each day.
The numbers shown in the Turning Movement Count (TMC) tables are the volume for each 15-minute period. The peak hour diagrams show the hourly volume of each movement during the busiest hour of the period.
