Information on traffic volumes is extremely important not only in decisions on capacity increase, but also in prioritisation of bridge and road maintenance works. Collection of traffic information on all the roads and of all the vehicles is not possible and therefore some of the values are estimated. Overall, the variations in traffic volumes can be divided into the following categories:

  1. Variations by hours (these may also vary by weekdays)
  2. Variations by weekdays
  3. Variations by months (weeks)
  4. Trends
  5. Random variations

The initial counting results reveal that almost 10 % of the daily traffic takes place between 07:00 and 08:00 and that Friday has most traffic.
