HIGHWAYS. MANAGING THE CITY TRAFFIC

In this article, a 5.5 million pound project to provide a traffic control system for a new motorway bridge across the River Lagan is described. This system incorporates some innovative control measures at the motor and urban road network interfaces. These include: closed loop control with the existing urban traffic control (UTC) system; driver information through rotating prism and electronic free text signs (enhanced message signs); and integrated communications between the police and UTC control rooms.
