Traffic system Saturn update [Gloucestershire Echo (England)]
(Gloucestershire Echo (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) BOFFINS are updating the county's traffic modelling computer. Armed with the latest information, the system known as Saturn allows the county council to test future plans and different transport schemes. It also helps anticipate the impact planning applications may have on traffic.
To update the Saturn model, routine traffic surveys are being carried out in the county during autumn 2013 and spring 2014. Different methods are being used, including road sensors to measure the volume of cars and roadside interviews to understand the nature of people's journeys.
