URBAN INCIDENT MANAGEMENT USING INTEGRATED CONTROL AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS

This paper discusses the development of strategies for integrated management and control of incident situations based on the experience of the ROMANSE (Road Management System for Europe) project in Southampton. The route guidance model RGCONTRAM has been used to develop and evaluate integrated traffic management strategies to cope with a wide range of potential incidents within the Southampton network. The effectiveness of various variable message sign scenarios are compared with the 'do nothing' case. For the majority of incidents studied the strategies have been found to be robust with positive benefits to the network and smaller groups of drivers. For the covering abstract see IRRD 880251.
