Traffic light sequence report for A96 Aberdeen: EIR release

Traffic Light Sequence Report or similar document which provides the following information:

i. the sequence of lights
ii. the time interval settings for each phase in the sequence of the lights
iii. any variation or alternatives to the above settings, e.g. at different times of the day;

controlling the junction of North Anderson Drive and Ashgrove Road West, and including the above information for each of the traffic flows, i.e.

i. northbound (coming either from south on North Anderson Drive or east from Ashgrove Road West)
ii. southbound (coming either from north on North Anderson Drive or east from Ashgrove Road West)
iii. eastbound (coming from the north or south on North Anderson Drive).

As the information you have requested is 'environmental information' for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations. We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA.

This exemption is subject to the 'public interest test'. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes. This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.
