posted on 2023-10-27, 09:43 authored by Jesse M. Kalwij

Mikros Traffic Monitoring (Pty) Ltd provides a traffic data collection service to various clients. Their biggest client is the South African National Roads Agency for which they operate in the order of 350 Permanent & another 450 Secondary Stations Countrywide on all National Roads. Mikros is also responsible for the traffic counts done for the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Free State, Northern Cape, North West, Limpopo & Gauteng Provinces. All traffic data collected for these and other clients is kept in an Oracle traffic data database for easy access and distribution. Some of the data collected date back as far as 1994. Based on these traffic density data Mikros issues a 'Traffic Count Yearbook' summarizing traffic on the main National routes of South Africa.

The objective of this summary is to describe the quantity and characteristics of the available data for potential use in CIB research projects.
