Transportation - average journey times (2022) Edit

This dataset grouping details the output from transport monitoring within Stirling. Outputs from the monitors feed into the Local Transport Strategy (LTS) which can be accessed via Stirling Council’swebsite.

Journey times’ data are gathered using Bluetooth sensors which detect Bluetooth devices travelling on monitored routes. The devices that are used are encrypted, and anonymise any data collected. No vehicles can be traced.  Journey times are calculated when one device is identified at two locations, this is referred to as a Bluetooth match.  The collection of journey times’ data can be affected by different activities and conditions.

  • There must be a minimum of five Bluetooth matches before the journey time can be generated 
  • journey time can be generated
  • Road closures will skew outputs as vehicles will be using alternative routes
  • Sensors can be moved to different sites therefore results will be zero until the locations are updated
  • Activity of the sensors can impact results. Normally the Bluetooth sensors are active between 7am and 7pm. However, if they receive up to two weeks of insufficient sunlight there can be unprecedented periods of inactivity

Traffic Scotlandcan provide updates on any road closures and theScottish Roadworks Commissionercan give further details on any

planned roadworks throughout the country.
