The London Traffic Control System includes some 6000 traffic signals. Approximately half the traffic signals are under Urban Traffic Control (UTC) and can be monitored using CCTV. These signals can be monitored and managed from the London Traffic Control Centre.In addition, some 2000 of these signals can be managed dynamically utilising loops in the road surface.This budget item allows for the extension of these facilities to some of the key Olympic routes well in advance of 2012 to enable pre-planning and network monitoring and management.
