Our Transport Data Team collects, processes, reports and shares a range of traffic data. Traffic data is collected to provide an evidence base. This is used to inform, justify and monitor investment in transport infrastructure and for land-use planning in Somerset.

Anyone can request traffic count information. It is particularly useful for developers preparing Transport Assessments and Travel Plans as part of significant planning applications.
