Traffic Counters on Brentlawn Drive

The City of Burnaby had traffic counters set up on Brentlawn Drive and Beta Ave from Tuesday March 27 until some time today.  I wonder how accurate the statistics will be considering that this was done during the first week after Spring Break (when considerable numbers of people are still out of town on trips with their children) and was done for less than 6 days.  For at least 2 of those days, the counter on Beta leading towards Brentlawn Drive was a tangled mess as it had become loose.

  1. At least they're finally counting traffic volume... In 2008, at an open house about the plan to turn Willingdon into a 6 lane divided highway... (a proposal that had all southbound Willingdon traffic unable to turn left from Parker to... Brentlawn... (Hello, Midlawn connects to every "Lawn", and is wider than Brentlawn)) the staff couldn't say what that would do to Brentlawn traffic.

    Though, volume currently isn't the issue imo.. yet. There's still usually an oportunity to 'J-Walk' with no cars on the block, "illegal" but beats using Willingdon&Gravely/Brentlawn, or Fairlawn/Brentlawn with its bad sightlines... Not volume, speed. 85th percentile is between 65 and 70 km/h you measured... Brentlawn must be re-engineered.... and that won't happen until the 134 is moved... why not send it down Delta to Lougheeed?
