ATMS06-Traffic Information Dissemination (Québec)


Existing (Partial)


Service Package Diagram


This service package, focused on MTQ highways, provides driver information using roadway equipment such as dynamic message signs. A wide range of information can be disseminated including traffic and road conditions, closure and detour information, incident information, and emergency alerts and driver advisories. This package provides information to drivers at specific equipped locations on the road network. Careful placement of the roadway equipment provides the information at points in the network where the drivers have recourse and can tailor their routes to account for the new information. This package also covers the equipment and interfaces that provide traffic information from a traffic management centre to regional Traveller Information Services (e.g. Québec 511). 

Coordination of traffic control plans and stategies with other agencies is shown in ATMS07.
