Traffic Volumes ADT 2019

Statistical Base

The traffic surveys carried out and analysed by the Traffic Management Division are based on the primary road network as defined in the Urban Development Plan for Traffic (Stages I – IV of the Berlin StEP network, SenUMK 2021). This network comprises about 1,530 km of a total of around 5,350 km. For the “Traffic Volume Map 2019”, a counting network comprising some 1,330 km was available including approx. 1,300 intersection and cross-section counts. The analyses were based on motor vehicle counts over a 12 h period (7am – 7pm) from the years 2016 up to the spring of 2019 and were extrapolated to the average weekday traffic volume (AWT) of the year 2019.

For the purposes of air quality and noise reduction planning, this network was supplemented by additional dividing points and network sections that do not directly refer to the abovementioned counts from the years 2016 to 2019. This expansion of the road lengths resulted in a primary road network of about 1,778 km of length.

Specifically, the data set presented here is based on the following:
  • primary road network, inventory (Berlin StEP network), as of December 2021,
  • extended network geometry, as of December 2021,
  • Traffic Volume Map 2019, Senate Department for the Environment, Transport and Climate Protection (SenUVK), Berlin Traffic Control (VLB).
