TRAFFIC CONGESTION – LA IS WORLD’S WORST
Los Angeles has the most traffic congestion in the world, according to the INRIX Global Traffic Scorecard, released this year.
Congestion across the UK, Germany and US cost almost $450 billion in 2016 or $971 per capita.
Road works contributing to traffic congestion
Traffic expert Christine Keyes from Road Manager said a big part of congestion was poorly managed road works.
“The new Road Manager traffic software can give road agencies and traffic companies much more control over essential works. This will help them limit traffic congestion,” she said.
Road Manager changes to the way you manage your roadworks and events. No more printing PDFs and binding folders for staff in the field. It allows you to draw all the traffic control plans for your special event or road works, then manage the work live. Your staff in the field can implement a special event traffic management plan live with one click on a mobile or tablet. Traffic controllers can notify the control room when a traffic control plan is in, with one click on their mobile or tablet. Your traffic management team can use the Road Manager Live overview screen in the control room to manage all your traffic plans at once, for a one stop shop for traffic planning and traffic management.
