The motorways and arterial network in the Auckland metropolitan area (population over l million) are reaching saturation and gridlock for significantly increased periods of each day. Transit New Zealand along with other interested organisations, have begun to take a series of initiatives directed towards implementing an advanced traffic management system (ATMS) for the region. The overall objective is that of providing strategic and comprehensive management of Auckland's road traffic. This paper firstly gives a background of traffic management in metropolitan Auckland and outlines the problems. It identifies the main deficiencies and the key regional issues to be addressed. The paper reviews the management of recurrent and non-recurrent congestion and the need for a centralised regional ATMS. It then outlines the desirability of developing a system architecture for its implementation. The paper briefly describes some of the main features and outlines the progress being achieved.
