Traffic data collection at key locations in Forbes


Video cameras will be installed at locations throughout Forbes this Wednesday, 13 September, to develop traffic modelling for future road improvements.

A specialist data collection firm will carry out this work on behalf of Transport for NSW.

Transport for NSW Director West Alistair Lunn said it was important the community understood the cameras were not collecting personal information or assessing driver safety.

“We are aware that the community may perceive these cameras to be something they are not – like speed, surveillance, or red light cameras,” Mr Lunn said.

“We are simply capturing data to help Transport for NSW to develop a road and traffic management model for future planning.”

Cameras will be mounted on posts and will be in each location for about one week. 

Data will be captured at twenty-one intersections and fifteen road midpoints for around 24 hours on Thursday 14 September. Six of these locations will then be monitored for about seven days.

There will not be any impacts or changed traffic conditions for motorists.
