Traffic management - ITS

In the era of smartphones and big data, the ubiquity of technology can be leveraged to better organize the flows of passengers and goods through safety improvements, information systems, network optimization, etc.

In order to achieve the objectives of its clients, TRANSITEC offers advanced skills and solutions to design, implement and optimize digital solutions in a way that is tailored to the needs of transport authorities.

Signalised traffic control at intersections

When their functioning is controlled, and aligned with an area-wide integrated mobility plan, traffic lights are able to effectively prioritise, secure and direct traffic flows.p>

TRANSITEC has decades of experience in designing and implementing traffic regulation. We are able to manage the entire process, from preparing a traffic signalisation plan at city-level to implementation in the field (execution and commissioning).

TRANSITEC is able to mobilise teams that:

  • are trained specialists
  • have an innovative outlook
  • have a global, multi-modal approach
  • are aware of any operating constraints in the area under consideration.

Traffic Management Centres (TMCs)

Traffic Management Centres (TMCs) are one of the key ways in which to manage traffic flow (no matter which mode) in a coherent and integrated way. TMCs, for example, are able to either house or facilitate:

  • traffic regulation mechanisms
  • public transport priority mechanisms
  • user information
  • traffic management for special events.

Faced with rapidly changing technology and what can seem like limitless IT architecture possibilities, it is essential to find the appropriate level of scaleable technology to meet the project owner's needs and technical capacity.

TRANSITEC has extensive international experience in this area, and guarantees integration with:

  • the mobility strategy and management of urban services
  • real-time travel data
  • the technical tools most appropriate to the project.

Traffic planning

Organising the way in which private vehicles move in a city or urban area is not an end in itself, but a way in which to:

  • limit traffic impact in sensitive zones
  • make the best use of the space allocated to private vehicles, to promote better-quality public spaces and alternative modes.

TRANSITEC is an expert in this field, as our work in Casablanca (Morocco), Sfax (Tunisia), Grenoble and Saint-Etienne shows.

As with all our work, we focus on multi-modality, and are committed to reaching consensus through transparent communication. We always take into account the impact of ITS interventions on traffic, and are careful to plan for and communicate these eventualities or possibilities.

Worksite management

No transport project can take place, and be accepted in the long run, without proper planning and careful execution – particularly as transport infrastructure projects can have a negative impact on the surrounding areas during construction. User safety is at stake, and the need to maintain smooth traffic flow at all times, requires a high level of monitoring and management skills.

TRANSITEC has extensive experience in managing traffic flows during construction phases – in both the urban environment as well as on highways. We do this by:

  • judicious planning of work periods
  • diligent design of worksite phases, which take worker and user safety into account
  • careful on-site execution and monitoring
  • design and implementation of a ’smart’ information strategy for users, which updates in real time.

User information

For decades, user information was limited to signs along the road, in train stations or inside buildings.

In this era of the ‘Smart City’, with multi-modal transport and transport-related apps, the amount of information out there has exploded. Managing this vast quantity of data, and making it available in usable forms, requires new and highly developed skills.

TRANSITEC can assist in developing an information strategy and implementation plan for projects such as:

  • road network marking at urban agglomeration level
  • on-site signage (for example pedestrian signage)
  • dynamic lane management
  • real-time information on the roadway network.
