Traffic Management is the term used to describe the management of the existing road network and its users to maximise safety, performance and dependability.

  • Improving roadway safety.
  • Managing commuter, bus, freight and tourist movement.
  • Improving all transport options, including cycling, walking and travel management.
  • Congestion in central city locations.
