Keeping Metro Traffic Moving Projects
Keeping Metro Traffic Moving (KMTM) seeks to deliver the following benefits and outcomes for our community and road users:
- safe and reliable journeys – people and freight movement on roads that are more efficient and productive, through active and safe management;
- informed travel choices – personalised travel information, reduced car dependency, higher vehicle occupancy and alternative travel modes and routes through more flexible, robust and varied options;
- sustainable access to our roads – improved connectivity and co-operation among vehicles, roads and travellers, including pedestrians and bicycle riders, and local communities and businesses; and
- improved customer experiences – services and information that are customer-focused and positive to encourage new and repeat usage and alleviate safety concerns and improved stakeholder engagement.
KMTM highlights some of the challenges that the road network is currently facing and identifies some of the opportunities for its improvement now, and into the future.
