Traffic Management is defined as an overall plan of strategies and tactical actions for accommodating traffic flow in an efficient, effective and safe manner during recurrent and non-recurrent events on the transportation network.
In this context, the objectives of Traffic Management Services (TMS) are to provide real time guidance and control information to the European traveller and haulier, avoiding overload as well as detecting incidents and emergencies, and thus ensuring safe and efficient use of the available road network.
EasyWay's Expert and Study Group on Traffic Management (ESG2 – TMS) has dealt with all aspects of Traffic Management related to the European road network at a strategic, tactical and operational level. It includes aspects of management, mobility, safety and security, thereby contributing to the main goals of EasyWay.
ESG2-TMS has covered three core services:
Sensitive road segments
Traffic Management on corridors and networks
The above include aspects such as safety, enforcement issues and data exchange. However the group covers these topics only insofar as they are directly related to the activity of road network operation and managing traffic.
