Telematics Application on the Belfast to Dublin Corridor (The Instant Project)

This paper describes the implementation of a Telematics application on the strategically important road corridor between Belfast in Northern Ireland and Dublin in the Republic of Ireland. The acronym for the project is INSTANT (Information and Management System for Multimodal Transport in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland). The objective of the project was to provide traffic control, monitoring and travel information over the 160km length of the corridor. The facilities installed include CCTV, journey time estimation using ANPR, roadside variable message signs and data exchange using DATEX 2 protocols between the traffic control centers in Belfast and Dublin. The project was part funded by a grant from the INTERREG IIIA program. .
