Counting Cycles

Thanks to "Matt" for raising this question.

In May 2014 I posted an article about the appearance of what I assumed was a cycle counter by the Ouse viaduct at St Ives.

Mike replied:
"You are right, it is a cycle counter, of the standard type that Cambs County Council use. It reports to the CCC with quarter hourly counts, but the stats that I've seen for the two on the new(-ish) Lodes Way are weekly, which isn't a great deal of use.

Installing counters is a condition of Sustrans' financial involvement, and Sustrans will probably also commission a manual count and survey questionaire."

I have since noticed a similar counter between Histon and Orchard Park, and a number of others on other cycle routes in the county.

So Cambridgesgire County Council should have quarter hourly data from these counters.

So firstly, lets ask: Does any reader of this blog knows where the data can be found?

If not I will ask CCC directly.

These include the St Ives to Huntingdon Bus Station and Hinchingbrooke Hospital section(s) of routes A and B, and the relatively new route R (being retimed "following feedback received from users"). Full details, with links to the revised timetables, can be found on the Stagecoach website.
