Did you know that Wellington Road between Commissioners Road E and Southdale Road E is London's most travelled section of roadway carrying 48,000 vehicles per day?
Using our interactive map you can view traffic flow volumes throughout the city. The numbers given represent the annual average daily traffic (AADT), measured in thousands of vehicles and were updated in 2013. You'll find a graphic key in the menu on the left of the map that identifies the type of roadway, i.e., arterial street, expressway and so on.
Traffic volumes vary by direction of travel, time of day, day of the week, month, nearby destinations, weather and other outside influences. The City currently has 11 permanent count stations that measure traffic volumes 24/7, 365 days a year. Data from the permanent count station on Wellington Street shows a distinct peak in northbound (NB) traffic in the morning and a similar peak for southbound (SB) traffic in the late afternoon. Data taken from the Guy Lombardo Bridge on Wonderland Road N for the same time period shows a different picture with traffic more balanced per direction.
Truck route information is also available. CityMap shows routes that are available 24-hours a day as well as those where trucks are permitted only between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm.
The City of London has been collecting traffic volume data since 1981. We compile information using automated counters supplemented with manual counts of vehicles and pedestrians at intersections.
CityMap can also help you plan alternate transportation such as taking a bus or using London's 137 kilometre pathway system for the self-powered options of walking, cycling or rollerblading.
