Transport technology making progress
Since the first variable message sign for the project was put in place earlier this year, the project team has been making progress with the installation of intelligent transport system technology.
A further 10 variable message signs out of a total of 16 signs have been put in place to date. These signs feature increased functionality and will display two colour text and four colour pictures as required.
When in use, road users will be provided real time traffic information such as expected travel times, congestion information and details of any incidents that have taken place on the network.
Alongside variable message sign installation, the project team has been making headway with the installation of cameras and fibre optic cables with configuration and testing work taking place on an ongoing basis.
There will be a staged approach to the launch of the intelligent transport system technology on the project as the work draws closer to completion.
