Boat Ramps Observational Study

Xyst undertook counts, using an observational count of vehicles across all boat ramps with the addition of a user count of park users at Marine Park. We completed 32 counts at each of the locations.

At the Boat Ramp carparking areas, we undertook an observational count of vehicles/boats/boat trailers. The points to be counted were:
• vehicles parked with trailers
• vehicles parked without trailers
• campervans/caravans
• other vehicle types (trucks/buses/commercial vehicles)

We prepared a summary report that builds upon previous surveys of the same nature in order to produce a pattern of growth of users at the key facilities in a growing city.

Project Benefit
