Traffic Surveys

The Authority, from time to time, undertakes traffic and travel surveys and where appropriate, utilizes electronic means of data collection e.g. email or online data collection forms on this website.

The identity of participants in such surveys is of no interest or value to the Authority and is not required as part of the data collection exercise. Participants, however, may be invited to submit a contact telephone number or address if they wish to be included in any incentive scheme (e.g. free draw for prizes) that may apply to the survey.

The provision of this information will always be optional and the participants can decide to remain anonymous. The contact details will be separated from the general survey data prior to the processing of the survey data and will only be used for the purpose of selecting and informing the winning participants. All contact data will be removed when relevant accounting procedures have been completed. The survey data (with all personal contact details removed) may be retained indefinitely by the Authority to enable long-term trends in travel behaviour to be monitored. These data will be totally anonymous and the Authority will not be able to associate any individual data item with any person. Full contact details of the person in charge of the data collection exercise will be part of the information provided about the purpose of the survey.
