Traffic Management Centre (TMC)
Real Time Traffic Management
The Traffic Management Centre is an important tool the City uses to control congestion throughout Surrey.
Located in City Hall, staff monitor vehicle and pedestrian traffic in real time using 330 cameras that are located throughout the City at key intersections. By the end of 2016, Surrey will have 400 cameras.
With the TMC, staff are able to:
- Proactively control signal lengths to keep traffic moving;
- See where accidents happen and give priority to detour routes;
- Keep traffic moving around construction to avoid congestion.
Staff in the TMC tweet traffic alerts from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Follow @SurreyTraffic for updates.
