112988Photo #112988Counting point

The screen line goes from where the camera is standing to the tree in the centre in the distance - the one closest to the H in PAPWORTH.

Traffic passing the screen line from right to left was counted as northbound, otherwise as southbound.

Cycle traffic going straight on over the road and then onto the road was included in the count - northbound going away from camera and southbound when coming towards where I'm standing.

Do you know who is responsible for this, installed today?
Several are going to cite it being anti disability, anti family. Hardly #beyondthebicycle. Looks very 1980s, hardly suitable
