Click on the image to zoom in for traffic flows on all Waverley Park streets for which traffic data is available.
It shows that through traffic impact is most prevalent on Ravenswood Drive and Dinmont Road. Other streets, particularly St Ronan's Drive also show levels of traffic that exceed what would be expected on a residential street. Unfortunately no data is available for Durward Avenue, Woodstock Avenue or Nigel Gardens. Anecdotally Durward Avenue is also affected by through traffic. Collecting further data is part of the Liveable Streets consultants' commission.
2017 Glasgow City Council data is available for Ravenswood Drive, Midlothian Drive and St Ronan's Drive.
2020 Glasgow City Council data (during the Covid pandemic) is available for all streets shown.
To permit a direct comparison of 'normal' or pre-Covid traffic flows for all streets, 2017 is considered a better baseline (assuming traffic will return to similar levels after the pandemic).
On those streets with both data sets, 2017 traffic flows are higher than 2020 by a factor of 1.8. Therefore the values for streets numbered 7 thru 14 have been derived using the following calculation: Covid (2020) traffic data multiplied by 1.8 equals 'normal' or pre-Covid (2017) traffic data.
This calculation was made on Dinmont Road, Peveril Avenue, Kenilworth Avenue and the bottom end of Midlothian Drive.
