Computerized Signal System
The Computerized Traffic Signal System employs a "distributed" system design, by implementing intelligent units at all on-street locations and a Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) at the Traffic Operations Centre. This design provides a means of backup support should any component of the system fail, and also provides a continuously operating system to the motoring public.
The Kadence adaptive traffic module will be implemented to adjust timings when unexpected traffic conditions arise.
