Traffic volume counts

Brisbane City Council provides a traffic volume count service for Council-owned traffic light intersections.

Before requesting a traffic count, contact Council to find out if the intersection is Council or Main Roads responsibility.

Traffic count average considerations may include:

  • public and school holidays or other events that significantly affect averages
  • pedestrians or different types of vehicles that cannot be identified
  • turning vehicles cannot be identified from those that are travelling straight, except in designated turning lanes

Other services

Other traffic counts also available include:

  • historical detailed manual traffic count
  • truck count details
