Brighton & Hove Traffic/Cycle Monitoring Data

Brighton & Hove City Council records the amount of traffic at key points around the city. This is done using automatic traffic counters, that are sensors built into the road. These trigger when a vehicle (or bicycle) passes by. This information is used to monitor yearly trends and seasonal variation, and the traffic count data is vailable to the public.

Local Transport Plan (LTP)

The Local Transport Plan 4 Document (LTP4) was approved by the city council in March 2015. It sets out the priorities, projects and programmes that need to be progressed in the future to help people move around the city safely, sustainably, and easily.

We're now developing our fifth Local Transport Plan (LTP5) for the city.

Public Realm Strategy

Brighton & Hove’s Public Realm Strategy aims to establish a co-ordinated, consistent and high quality approach to all work in the public realm, including the streetscape. The overall objective is to ensure the city’s streets and public spaces are designed to bring maximum benefit to all residents.

Safer Road Strategy

The council is the local Highway Authority and recognises its responsibilities around road traffic. As part of the Safer Road Strategy (PDF 22KB), the city council is committed to keeping road users safe and to prevent accidents.
