Department for Transport seeks local authority transport data to aid covid-19 response

View original

TransportXtra has reported that the Department for Transport is sourcing data sets of transport movements from local authorities across the country. The data will be used to support the Government’s policies to the COVID-19 outbreak. Collection of the data is being coordinated by ITS (UK). The DfT is keen to source data sets in the following areas, especially for local roads: traffic flow (i.e. count, not speed); traffic movement (e.g. trip length and overall distance); parking; and cycle and pedestrian movements. Local authorities are being asked to share data about any of these with the DfT as soon as possible. The data needs to be already readily available and updated daily.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
