Much of the developed world is only just recovering from economic crisis and budgets are extremely tight. Certainly for the next few years capital programs are being scaled back and maintenance & operations will be under severe pressure. Nevertheless, the issues of safety, congestion and environment remain, so road operators are taking a fundamental look at what they do and how they do it.
This timely session will ask some stark questions and also discuss some radical solutions:
How can we manage traffic by using what we have already?
Where can we get 80% of the benefits with 20% of the costs?
To what extent does the wide availability of in-vehicle information reduce the need for infrastructure?
What are the relatively less beneficial services that we just cant afford for now?
Where can technology really help?
