National Traffic Control Centre at Quinton, Birmingham, will give real information about what is happening across the motorway network, which will help drivers to plan their journeys better, by enabling them to avoid traffic jams, make journey times faster, safer and more reliable.

 

The National Traffic Control Centre is operated by TiS Ltd on behalf of the Highways Agency through a private finance initiative. It will provide a central information point for the motorway and trunk road network, collecting real time information from 3,750 road sensors and 700 cctv cameras as well as reports from the Highways Agency traffic officers, police forces, local highway authorities, contractors, leisure and entertainment venues and weather centres. Drivers can log onto the Highways Agency's real-time traffic website or call the 24-hour automated telephone service.
