The Local Authority Data Digest is back on-line


The Local Authority Data Digest is back up and running following the renewal of the agreement with Arup for data production. The data is now available for the 2020 and 2021 and has been reorganised into separate pages for each year. The weekly updating process has also restarted, meaning data for 2022 will also soon be available on a new dedicated page.

The data for 2020 can be found here;

The data for 2021 can be found here;

Local Authority Traffic Data Digest 2021


The Transport Technology Forum continues to publish this data set as a weekly digest for interested parties, not least those bodies who went above and beyond the call to share their data with us as part of the initial and ongoing Covid-19 response. The pages listed above contain a full archive of weekly digests going back to the start of the project.

These weekly digests have been prepared by the Transport Technology Forum as part of its remit to drive more effective and efficient management of existing and new road networks, as a key national opportunity before, during and after the current Covid-19 emergency. Road transport will remain a key pillar of how people and goods move across the nation, not just on strategic roads. Improving road travel through technology is a core aim of the Forum. The Forum promotes a collaborative culture to open up the opportunity and address the caution which has historically impeded efficiency and innovation.

These digests also provide examples of best practice shared by local authorities including highlighting an initiative to allow the public to report places where they think changes to road layout are needed to support safe, sustainable travel, changes to bike hire schemes to encourage, or react to, increased take-up, road layout improvements and the underwriting of schemes to enable quicker introduction.

Each week the Transport Technology Forum publishes a summary of data gathered from a range of local authorities across the country, providing an overview of how public behaviour is changing as a result of Coronavirus restrictions being eased.
