Project Description:
ADVANTEC Consulting Engineers served as the project manager of the consultant team that conducted “Hong Kong Strategic Road Network (SRN) Traffic Control and Surveillance System Study” for Transport Department. The purposes of the project are to evaluate the feasibility of and to formulate a strategy for deploying Intelligent Transport System (ITS) comprising traffic surveillance, information and control techniques/technologies for the management of the Strategic Road Network (SRN).

The goals of this project were to improve safety and efficiency, reduce environmental cost associated with congestion and to recommend a strategy for phased implementation. This will be used as a roadmap to guide the policies and actions of Transport Department (TD) for the organization and implementation of ITS.
