Pnumatic Hose Assignments

Our pneumatic hose counts are conducted by installing either our round road tubes or ‘D’ shaped hose across the roadway and connecting our TRS or Mini TRS counters.  We can collect per vehicle or data summarized by specified time period (usually 15 minute time bins).  This data can include volume, speed, classification, gap or headway.

 

2004                       Trans Canada Highway at Pritchard, B.C.   

We conducted a 48 hour vehicle by vehicle count providing the direction the vehicles were travelling, speed, class, time and intervals between vehicles.  This count was in conjunction with a noise study related to railway expansion.

 2008                       Coquhalla Hwy 5 Zopkios Rest Area

This two week, one way, one lane speed and class hose count was conducted at the southbound entrance to the rest area.  The report presented the data in several ways including average volumes for each hour of each day, a graph of volumes comparing average weekday and weekend volumes, the peak hours for each class of vehicle, the total volumes in each speed bin and the actual volumes for each hour counted.

 2008                       Road, Snake, Mortality Study Near Oliver BC

This volume, speed and class hose count was conducted for the BC Ministry of the Environment in conjunction with a snake mortality study they were conducting on White Lake Fairview Road.  There was no formal report.  The speed, class and volume data was submitted in Excel format.  In addition to our own hose count we assisted them in setting out a hose count of their own.

 

 

   2009                       North Thompson Climbing Lane Hwy 5 at McLure

A vehicle by vehicle hose count was conducted to be used for planning and design of the truck lane.  The count taken at the crest of the vertical curve showed the time, lane (direction), class, speed, number of axels, and axel spacing of each vehicle that passed during the 3 full and 2 part days of the count.
