ESTABLISHMENT OF THE TRAFFIC CONTROL CENTER IN NOBEOKA AND ITS EFFECT

Infrastructure improvement via a new traffic control system has been ongoing in Japan since 1994 under the guidance of the National Police Agency. The Nobeoka Traffic Control Sub-Center, based on Intensive Traffic Control System (ITCS) concept of the Universal Traffic Management Society of Japan (UTMS), was established to ensure safety and smooth traffic flow. It is a large-scale sub-center that can expand the function to meet the whole concept of UTMS in the future. The Nobeoka Sub-Center features: 1) a new signal control method with both the automatic generation function and the pattern selection function and 2) engineering workstations to make a common database including traffic volume, occupancy time, etc., utilized in this system and to carry out the real-time transaction using this database. The signal control method has resulted in a 5 percent reduction (on average) in traveling time along National Route 218 in the Nobeoka urban area. Efficiency of operations has improved due to the use of the engineering workstations.
