Summary

"The RTA Environment Branch established its Oral History Program in 1997, to investigate various topics of historical interest. Traffic Management Initiatives is the eight thematic oral history to be undertaken as part of the Program ... The project was based on 47 hours of digitally recorded interviews with 37 participants - current and former staff of the RTA and its predecessor organisations the Department of Motor Transport, Traffic Authority and Department of Main Roads. It discusses the many innovative ideas and new technologies which have been utilised over the years to manage traffic on the road network, and the various methods and techniques employed to improve the safety and efficiency of the transport system, such as traffic signals, SCATS, traffic control cameras, line marking, clearways, roundabouts, moveable medians, bus priority, driver aid systems and electronic tolling."--Prelim. p. booklet.
