Sydney advances intelligent transport management system

Sydney has begun to develop an advanced transport management system, providing customers with improved real-time information and predictive technology that can reduce congestion. 

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Andrew Constance, said the new system will help the Transport Management Centre (TMC) make faster, more informed decisions which results in more reliable passenger journeys and lower levels of congestion.

“It makes us more responsive to incidents by automating current manual processes using data. The goal is to predict 30 minutes into the future and act in five – helping to divert traffic, coordinate public transport and provide real-time information to customers about any disruptions or alternative routes.”

The system will be delivered in 2020 and will include auto-generated congestion alerts that tell operators when and where unusual conditions exist, leading to faster detection and clearance of crashes and other incidents.
