The use of VMS in integrated urban traffic management

Shinakis, E.G., Richards, A.C. and McDonald, M. (1995) The use of VMS in integrated urban traffic management In Proceedings of the International Conference on Applications of New Technology to Transport Systems, May 1995, Melbourne. TRL., pp. 195-211.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The ROMANSE (ROad MANagement Systems in Europe) project seeks to provide information to travellers and to control the network so as to enhance the current travel and traffic conditions in the city of Southampton. This paper deals with a major roadwork and a subsequent accident at a key arterial at the outskirts of the city of Southampton. An integrated strategy, which consists of both global route guidance and UTC optimisation, will be introduced to overcome the primary and secondary traffic effects caused by the network situation described above. A network wide monitoring system, a comprehensive database (ASTRID) and an extensive amount of driver behaviour surveys which are currently being undertaken will enable a good insight regarding network effects under various traffic situations. This mechanism will facilitate the strategy implementation and the post mortem activity for the updating of the developed strategies. A review of the key route guidance functions within RGCONTRAM, the specific features relevant to VMS simulation, and the modelling assumptions will be included. (a) For the covering entry of this conference, see IRRD abstract 868345.
