Traffic Census 2020

Every five years UNECE conducts the E-Road census, which asks for infrastructure information and traffic volumes on the E-Road network, as defined in UNECE's AGR agreement. The E-Road network consists of roads considered to be of international importance. A map of the network is available.

Traffic levels are measured in Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT), which is designed to give an indication of traffic on average throughout the year. The 2020 round took place during the start of the exceptional COVID-19 pandemic, meaning that data may not be comparable with 2015 (the trends in traffic levels over time are of particular interest).

As of January 2022, six countries have therefore announced that the census could not take place as normal for 2020: Belarus, Bulgaria, Czechia, Germany, Romania and Slovakia.
