The management of traffic at major roadworks on dual-carriageway roads, especially on motorways, is discussed in terms of the types of problem it may pose in safely reconciling the need for working space and space for traffic. The development of various types of traffic system and their operational characteristics is discussed together with possible implications for the modelling of roadworks conditions. Finally, the limitations of present systems, including those imposed by current designs, are outlined and some possible lines of further development to meet ever increasing traffic demand are indicated.
