Midblock Surveys

Mid-block Classifications

Classification surveys involve the recording of vehicle type.  Classification categories may be as simple as 'car' and 'truck' or extend up to the full 12 Austroads classifications.

Data is typically collated into 15 min blocks, but these can be customised to suit your needs. Trucks can be further classified by their hazardous goods carry code and other vehicles can be classified based on their public transport functionality.

Reporting needs may also require further breakdown of the Austroads classifications such as splits of Austroads classes 1-3 into limousine; hire car; taxi; car derivative used for commercial purposes; car with trailer (1, 2 or 3 axles).
