Traffic Survey Results

Click here to download the results of the 2009 Traffic Survey.

Traffic Counts were carried out by members of the Comox Valley Cycling Coalition on seven major arterial roads in and out of the City of Courtenay on September 24, 2009. The count was done from 7 – 9 AM and 3 – 6 PM, covering the commuting peak time.

The main purpose of the count was to gather data about bicycle use in the area and to compare cycling with overall vehicle traffic.

Bicycles amounted to 1.7 % of all traffic when considering the entire counting data on all seven locations and over the entire 5 hour period. The percentage of cyclists ranged from a high of 4.3% on Headquarters Road to a low of 1.1% on Cliffe Avenue and 17th Street Bridge.
