VIC DT - Traffic Count Locations (Point)

This dataset contains the location GPS coordinates and textural description of all traffic counts conducted by VicRoads over the past 20+ years. VicRoads collects thousands of counts each year across the state. Depending on the type of equipment used this will determine the accuracy and the type of data collected. eg Data collected at Traffic Lights (SCATS) does not classify the data into cars and truck. Turning Movement data does not have a traffic speed component etc. Data is not collected at every location every year. Some Traffic flow movements (TFMs) have also been used for adhoc counts. A strategic counting program has been developed to ensure an even coverage of data is available both temporally and spatially based on value to the state.

For more information please visit the VicRoads Data Portal.

On 1 July 2019, VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria came together with the Department of Transport. This data is served directly through the Depart of Transport Open Data Portal API and will automatically reflect any updates made to the data.
