The number of ITS assets in Essex is as follows (at 1 April 2017):
The ITS Maintenance team are able to remotely monitor and control all traffic signal installations (and the majority of the remaining ITS equipment) from our office in Chelmsford.
All traffic signal equipment in Essex is either connected to:
- a dial-up remote monitoring system which enables faults to be automatically detected and ‘called in’ to our fault centre; or
- our Urban Traffic Control (UTC) system which as well as reporting equipment faults, also controls groups of traffic signals (typically in town centres) to alter green times based on real-time traffic flow as well as synchronising operation with other traffic signals on the network in order to provide linked green signals for the priority/main road routes.
If you notice a fault with any of our ITS equipment in Essex, you can report it online.
(Please provide important information such as the precise location of the equipment, your direction of travel, the nature of the fault and the date/time of day the fault was observed)
