Incident Management: FAST-TRAC Phase IIB Deliverables. No. 20. The Model Analysis Report on the Benefits of SCATS in Alleviating the Impacts of Incidents

Selecting the most appropriate traffic control strategy for incident congestion management can have a major impact on the extent and duration of the resulting congestion. This research investigated the effectiveness of several control strategies on various incident conditions. The selected control strategies representing possible ITS technologies included traffic metering (ATMS), traffic diversion (ATIS), and traffic diversion with signal timing modification (ATIS/ATMS). The analysis was conducted on a hypothetical dense grid surface street network.
