Abstract

Transport is now firmly established in the political agenda as public awareness grows of the impact of congestion on towns and cities and the people who live and work in them. Consequently, transport policies are now evolving to meet a wider range of objectives. New ways of managing transport networks are now needed to support this change cost effectively.

Urban Traffic Management and Control (UTMC) Systems will be one way of assisting authorities to meet this need. The UTMC Technical Specification has now been launched and this aims to encourage the development and implementation of UTMC systems.
