Traffic control in Germany in an European context

In Germany a program for traffic control on federal motorways has already been set up 1970. Due to the extremely sharp traffic increase since the mid-1980s and the positive effects of traffic control systems this program has been actualised and prolonged several times. The Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing updated for the last time 2002 the existing program and extended its duration until 2007. The first phases of the program contained predominantly measures with a regional character limited on the responsibility areas of the single state highway authorities which administer federal interstate highways and autobahns on behalf of the federal government. As a result of increasing co-operation in the field of traffic management the current program contains first cross-border measures, in particular for network control, for neighbouring regions. This approach will be presented by the example of concrete projects on federal and European level.
