Traffic Surveys

St John's Road, Corstorphine

 

1931 Survey

On a recent visit to Corstorphine Heritage Trust's museum at the Heritage Centre, Corstorphine, I was interested to read this survey of traffic passing along St John's Road, Corstorphine.

St John's Road is part of the Edinburgh-Glasgow Road, at Corstorphine, about 3 miles to the west of the centre of Edinburgh.

I was interested to see the many British cars and the large number of trams that were recorded in the survey.

2011 Survey

I visited  Corstorphine, today and counted the vehicles passing along St John's Road.  I stood just to the west of the junction with Clermiston Road.

There were too many vehicles to count both directions at the same time, so I counted:

-  for one hour from 4pm, vehicles travelling east, then

-  for one hour from 5pm, vehicles travelling west

Here are the results, set out in the same format as for the 1931 survey.

Vehicles observed over one hour travelling east then one hour travelling west by Peter Stubbs.
