Byline: EMMA CHANNON

ROSE City traffic figures collated by Transport and Main Roads could soon be used to help local businesses.

The department is in the preliminary stages of collecting travel time data, which they said would be used to investigate travel routes, where motorists arrive from and the length of time motorists stop in Warwick.

This information could be collected from small machines, believed to be perched on guide posts. The machines would only gather statistics purely related to road usage Co no personal information would be stored.
