Intelligent Transport Systems
  • SANRAL is in the process to implement Intelligent Transport Systems for freeways in Gauteng.
  • The system utilizes different technologies such as traffic detectors, CCTV and electronic tags in vehicles to collect information about traffic conditions and to detect incidents
  • The information collected is processed at the Network Management Centre (NMC) that is located at the Midrand Fire Station. At/from the NMC -
    • The public is informed about traffic conditions/incidents
    • Emergency services are informed about incidents and provided with real time images from the incident
    • Intelligent decisions to optimise traffic flows are taken.
its continued
ITS (continued)
  • Information is provided to the public by means of:
    • Variable (electronic) Message Signs (VMS)
    • Radio reports
    • SMS services
    • A web page
  • SANRAL almost completed the first phase of the project for the Ben Schoeman:
    • The NMC was set up

    • 70 CCTV cameras
    • 10 Variable Message Signs
