Insight into the ongoing traffic situation is very important whenever there are roadworks or events. Knowing how traffic is moving and the measures needed to direct it helps traffic flow smoothly around roadworks or on the way to events. The Event Traffic Dashboard helps in this respect by drawing on various data sources from governments and navigation system users.
During events, it is important to maintain a smooth flow of traffic at all times. By closely monitoring inbound and outbound traffic routes and being able to implement your scenarios and accompanying traffic management measures immediately, you can make sure event visitors and passers-by keep moving. If you combine this with the management features available in virtually all navigation systems through our Traffic Reportal or the Waze Community, then you have a unique palette of options to ensure the free flow of traffic.
Additional congestion can also be prevented because incidents in the traffic management area can be detected much more quickly thanks to incident reports from Waze, the police or the road authority. This information is displayed in real-time on our dashboard so event organisers, police or traffic controllers can act upon it immediately.
The dashboard can be extended by the addition of the ‘Historical data’ module. This saves the displayed data for a set period of time, revealing any trends and allowing incidents to be analysed afterwards. This helps set out future courses of action and facilitates the making of policy decisions.
We would be glad to help you get started on actively managing visitor traffic with our total approach using Event Support.
When it comes to roadworks, we offer the Roadwork Traffic Dashboard.
