Commercial vehicle flows by road network

Data collected between 2005 to 2007, 3% of sample collected in 2005, 51% in 2006 and 46% in 2007.

This dataset contains a compilation of data collected from different sources.

VOG 06/ VOG 08 (Value of Goods) :
The data is derived from the information collected in the 2006 Ontario Commercial Vehicle Survey. This survey is a roadside intercept survey of truck drivers, which collects information about the trip, commodity and the vehicle. The survey primarily captures intercity trucking activity and under-represents truck flows in urban areas. The value of goods provided in this table is derived from the Commercial Vehicle Survey, but factored up to represent the overall trucking activity on the network segment for 2006 and 2008.

AADTT 2006 and *AADTT* 2008:
The data is derived from the Ministry of Transportation's (MTO) inventory of annual traffic data for the Provincial Highways. The commercial volumes are first calculated using the AADT and the Commercial Percentage values for each traffic segment. These values are then adjusted to remove variations between segments caused by fluctuations in AADT.

The volume given for each direction is one-half of the total value. MTO does not maintain volume by direction. For freeway segments with core/collector configuration, the total volume is divided into four equal portions and assigned to each stream.

Hourly Truck Volumes ( WD00-23 and WN00-23):
These fields contain estimates of average hourly volumes for a typical weekday and weekend day. The estimates are based on observed hourly distribution at more than 100 directional Commercial Vehicle Survey sites across the province, AADTT and other information.

RD _NAME:
Name of the road

VOG 06:
2006 average daily value of goods assigned to road network link by directions.

VOG 08:
2008 average daily value of goods assigned to road network link by directions.

AADTT 2006:
2006 Annual Average Daily Truck Traffic; it is the truck volume assigned to road network link by directions.

WD 00-23:
2008 Weekday ( WD ) hourly truck volume; 00 - 23 represents starting hour of the day (e.g. 12 represents 12 P.M. - 1 P.M.).

WN 00-23:
2008 Weekend ( WN ) hourly truck volume; 00 - 23 represents starting hour of the day (e.g. 12 represents 12 P.M. - 1 P.M.).
