Sydney Congestion Improvement Program

Roads and Maritime Services NSW

Easing Sydney’s Congestion (ESC) has embarked on a $90m program to trial and implement technology solutions to address Sydney’s major traffic issues with the Congestion Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP includes a major update to the SCATS to dynamically change the timing of traffic lights in response to real time traffic demands and vehicle volumes using additional, innovative detector locations along a corridor of 13 consecutive traffic intersections on the Pacific Highway on Sydney’s North Shore.

It also includes a trial of wireless Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) systems to provide priority to a dedicated fleet of heavy transport vehicles.

This program aims to make Sydney’s traffic signals smarter to reduce unnecessary stopping at traffic lights, easing congestion on the main road corridors.
