Traffic management has received a financial boost meaning better monitoring and coordination of the road network.

Funding to the sum of £1.35 million was recently given the greenlight at a meeting of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA).

The money will be spent on delivering the Corridor Management plan, which is led by us and supported by the ten districts, to highlight potential causes of congestion and improve performance.

We'll now start to deliver a number of improvements including new and improved ANPR cameras, network monitoring software that will use GPS technology to provide real-time updates to SatNav and other navigation devices through to new bus priority sensors at traffic lights and more digital message boards across the region.

The Corridor Management plan also sets out to ensure closer scrutiny of planned work by local councils to reduce the impact on the road network.
