Seend Parish Council



Metro Count, High Street, Seend - Results


This was undertaken between 4th and 10th February 2019 along the High Street between the Lye Field and the Manor House.      Speeds for a total of 28,962 vehicles in free flowing traffic in both directions were recorded.  Total traffic volume during this period was 47,519 vehicles (this figure may be higher than above due to congestion when 'free-flowing' speeds cannot be recorded.  The 85th percentile speed was 34.6mph (the speed at or below which 85% of the traffic is travelling).  The average speed was 30.6 mph


The results mean that because the speeds were under 35mph, there can be no community speed watch or police enforcement.  We will not be able to install a speed indicator device.
