Traffic Volumes AWT 2014

Statistical Base

The basis of the traffic surveys carried out and analysed by the Berlin Traffic Control (VLB) is the main road network as defined in the Urban Development Plan for Traffic (StEP classes I – IV of the detailed network Berlin, SenUVK 2017). This network comprises about 1,700 km. For the “Traffic Volume Map 2014”, approx. 1,300 intersection and cross-section counts of a counting network comprising about 1,330 km were available. The analyses were based on motor vehicle counts over 12 h from the years 2012 up to the spring of 2015 and were extrapolated to a mean traffic volume (AWT) of the year 2014 (Ingenieurbüro statplan 2014).

For the purposes of air quality and noise reduction planning, this network was supplemented by additional division points and network sections that do not directly refer to the abovementioned counts from the years 2012 to 2015. This expansion of the road lengths resulted in a primary road network of about 1,766 km of length.

Specifically, the data set presented here is based on the following:

  • detailed network Berlin, as of January 2016
  • extended network geometry, as of November 2016
  • Traffic Volume Map 2014, Senate Department for the Environment, Transport and Climate Protection (SenUVK), Berlin Traffic Control (VLB)
  • processing of the traffic volume data 2014 for air quality and noise reduction planning, VMZ Berlin Betreibergesellschaft mbH, as of November 2016.
