How to use connected vehicle data to identify contraflow and effects of construction sites. This use case can be applied to both local traffic area management and road safety.
TfNSW’s pavement team for Regional and Outer Metro (ROM) wanted to understand the impact of contraflow on the Hume Highway in both directions. Traffic was being redirected to let workers replace a section of the road.
The client was interested in:
They also wanted four questions answered:

Data also showed the contraflow had a clear impact during the times it was active (i.e. 11am-7pm).
