Using ICT to improve traffic management

The audit assessed the effectiveness of VicRoads’ management of the ICT systems it uses to improve traffic flow outcomes on Melbourne’s arterial road system and freeways. The audit focused on the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure, Public Transport Victoria and VicRoads. It found that there is no strategy or coordinated plan for using ICT traffic management systems to complement broader integrated transport and land-use initiatives. The audit also found that public transport tracking systems are obsolete and lack an effective interface with road traffic signals, which means that tram and bus priority is not always provided when required. Overall, the implication from this audit is that broader aspirations for more sustainable and amenable road use and urban planning are not being directly supported and operationalised by technology solutions.
