SANRAL has two important and highly effective communication systems that provide road users with information to ensure they arrive safely and with travel-time predictability.
The Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) currently operates in Cape Town, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. The Advanced Traffic Information System (ATIS) collects information about our road networks, where information such as traffic flow conditions and incident notification alerts are disseminated
for purposes of pre-trip and en-route decision making.
The information is distributed on SANRAL’s i-traffic website, the Variable Message Signs (VMS) and to local radio stations and social media platforms reaching hundreds of thousands of motorists. We also use the recorded incident footage to train and debrief our operational personnel, emergency services, traffic and law enforcement stakeholders to ensure effective on-scene management and to assist with resource management.
