This chapter describes the findings from each site visit. It provides a context for each country's overall approach to congestion management and summarizes key strategies deployed in each country related to traffic management and managed lanes. The scan team began the scanning study in Athens, Greece, to participate in the First International Symposium on Freeway and Tollway Operations. While this country was not on the list of those visited from the direct perspective of the scan purpose, the group was able to assess some of the congestion management issues in Greece as part of symposium activities. The following sections ...
It makes use of automatic systems and human intervention to manage traffic flow and ensure the safety of road users. It is currently in operation on the M42 motorway south-east of Birmingham and in Warwickshire . The scheme has been criticised by some due to possible safety and environmental concerns, however it may now be expanded onto other roads following the initial trial on the M42. It is seen as a less expensive alternative to widening a road .

The WSDOT Blog: How high-tech tools can improve commutes
George Jetson would be jealous. Sure, he flew to work in a domed commuter pod, but could his skyway tell him where the congestion was before he was stuck in it? I think not. But that’s exactly what we’re working on for some of the busiest highways in the Seattle area. Have you ever found yourself sitting in traffic wondering, “Where IS this traffic coming from? A wreck? Obama’s motorcade?” You don’t know whether it will clear up around the next bend or if there’s a mass evacuation you didn’t hear about. Well, your commute is going to get a lot less mysterious with automatic, ... market research, surveys and trends
LTE, WiMAX to boost stickiness, stop churn, save revenues ...
Next generation wireless technologies such as 3G LTE and Mobile WiMAX will prompt operators to adopt an ‘open access’ mentality, allowing any client device to connect to the network. This will lead to higher service stickiness and reduced churn, analysts say. Furthermore, as long as operators resist the urge to lock client devices to their respective mobile broadband access networks, the more smartphones, laptops and ultra mobile devices connected to such high speed networks will lead to incremental revenues for mobile carriers. Research released by analyst Frost & Sullivan on Thursday predicts that by 2013, there ... market research, surveys and trends

region using dynamic message signs over each lane at one-half mile intervals. The signs display variable speed limits, lane status and real-time traffic information so drivers know what is happening ahead and can adjust their driving accordingly.  WSDOT controls the signs to actively close lanes or slow speeds in advance of congestion or a blocking incident. This technology is expected to increase roadway efficiency and safety. Jacobs assisted WSDOT with overall program management services, procurement and contract administration during the design and construction of the signs and the supporting infrastructure, as well as ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
M42 motorway at AllExperts
there are areas where this orbital system does not work well. One such point is junction 3A, the link between the M42 and the M40 , where traffic is often heavy in the rush hour . Junction 6 for Birmingham International Airport and the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) can also be problem area when major events such as Crufts are taking place at the NEC. When the M42 was going through the planning stages in 1977 there was great opposition to the development by the residents of Bromsgrove. Ironically, much of the town's population now depends on this motorway (and the M5) for their commuting needs. Obviously many of the ...

I am researching the agenda for Informa's brand new Broadband Traffic Management event (London, 17-18 November) and am keen to identify the key challenges and opportunities for operators in terms of dealing with the rise in data traffic over their networks caused by increased uptake of mobile broadband, online video, P2P etc. I am interested to understand the key technical and commercial challenges associated with deploying DPI and the key decisions operators have to make about different approaches to this. I am especially interested in speaking with operators and specialist DPI vendors. Look forward to hearing from you! ...
