Safe roads calculator

This calculator allows you to assess the underlying risk of a section of road, based on land use, road design and operational characteristics.

Preference-based cycle routing

This is a free tool provided by Abley to help cyclists plan better journeys. For the same trip the planner shows three alternatives: the fastest route, the quietest route, which prefers safer off-road facilities and avoids busy roads, and a balanced route which trades off between the two.

Future traffic growth calculator

This is a free tool provided by Abley to assist transport professionals, developers and planners to understand the traffic levels which may be experienced in the future.  The calculator takes current Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) flows and growths them to a specified future date, based on past growth trends in similar environments.  A high, medium and low estimate is produced in each case.
