Weather conditions were perfect in the afternoon of May 29, 2022 such that the first videotaping session at the Blackfriars Bridge was completed between 1300 and 1500 hours. As expected a large number of users were observed on the Thames Valley Parkway (TVP) where it crosses at the east end of the Blackfriars Bridge. Ten video cameras were set up along the bridge as well as at the TVP crossing point. Once again it was our preliminary observation that there were few motor vehicles crossing the bridge.
We are now in the process of copying the videos and then shrinking the resolution so that they can be incorporated into a video project on the Adobe Premiere software. This shrinking is a time-consuming process and will likely take several days to complete. Once this is done the video segments will be synchronized in the project and we can begin to consider how analysis will evolve. If anyone is interested in being involved in the analysis please let us know.
