TRAFFIC IN LOWICK – OCTOBER 2019 [revised]

Posted on Updated on

The Police have not informed us of any spot speed checks during this period.  The percentage of those exceeding the speed limit from the East have been lower than last month, 28.50% as opposed to 34.87% last month. From the West it was almost the same with 39.51% against last month’s 39.15%.  There was another especially selfish character going past the Vicarage at 70<75mph around 2215hrs on Friday the 11th.
In October the total number of vehicles recorded coming into Lowick from the East was 32,093 (up from September’s 27,649) and from the West it was 28,616 (down from September’s 30,468).  There appear to have been several Diversions off the A1, see page 3 of the Summary Sheet, as confirmed by the large increase in volume of vehicles travelling at below 10mph coming from the West.  However, some of this might still be due to the harvest:

In respect of the A1 diversion through Lowick, I compared the whole of October 2019 against that of 2018.  From the East, there was a spectacular increase in vehicles of 716% (+8482) and from the West, it was an impressive 445% (+5842), see attached spreadsheet. [Stats section of the Parish Council Website]. The figures may not be statistically significant, but it is an indication of the extra traffic diverted through Lowick.  The diversion for all northbound traffic from the A1 was through Lowick, whilst the majority of the southbound traffic was diverted further west.
REVISION FROM PH
My apologies;  I have now triple checked my figures and discovered that I had made an error manipulating the data.  The correction merely increases the amount of traffic coming into Lowick from the west in 2019 in respect to 2018:
“In respect of the A1 diversion through Lowick, I compared the whole of October 2019 against that of 2018.  From the East, there was a spectacular increase in vehicles of 716% (+8482) and from the West, it was an impressive 445% (+5842)  463% (+5908), see attached spreadsheet.”
