Operation Moving Traffic report: a fresh approach to keeping Adelaide moving

Operation Moving Traffic was started in 2015 to improve the efficiency and reliability of the transport network in terms of travel times, safety and services. Improvements will benefit all network users, from freight operators to commuters, and also including those who travel around by bicycle or walking. Operation Moving Traffic focuses on making the best use of existing road and public transport assets through a mix of short to medium term, low-cost actions. These actions will complement current major infrastructure improvements such as the North-South Corridor and the O-Bahn busway extension and a longer-term, network-wide program of Moving Traffic Plans. Several initiatives have, or are in the process, of being implemented. The installation of electronic signs that give road users up-to-date information about travel times and help them make decisions about their journeys has been already undertaken across the city. Others such as a partnership with the Adelaide City Council to identify ways to improve transport movement within the CBD, which has led to a trial traffic signal co-ordination initiative on Hutt Street, with other streets to follow. Operation Moving Traffic was preceded by early consultation with stakeholders in local government, industry and community interest groups over several months in 2015. We will continue to consult with stakeholders on other solutions and approaches throughout 2016. The actions we choose will align with the longer-term initiatives to promote both growth and liveability set out in the Integrated Transport and Land Use Plan and The 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide.
