For traffic control centres around the country, the two main causes of congestion are collisions and roadworks.

Urban Traffic Control (UTC) systems are used to link together individual traffic signal installations. They control the starts and duration of the green periods given to traffic at adjacent sets of traffic signals along a route or within a road network. When conventional portable signals are deployed at roadworks they often can’t integrate with the existing UTC network, leading to disrupted traffic flow and congestion.

Solutions that can integrate to UTC networks are usually labour intensive and can be expensive to install, often requiring overhead or underground cabling and roadside configuration.

Our UTC Master Controller is capable of operating under UTC fixed time plans, or as part of a SCOOT node and connects to the Highways Authority network by 3g/4g or by ADSL connection. It enables the wireless control of all portable or temporary signals in the set up, thus removing the risks of cables.

Our UTC master controller offers a specialist solution, suited to highly traffic sensitive sites or long term works which allowed the signals to be fully integrated into urban networks.

Key Features

  • The only wireless, radio-linked solution for portable Urban Traffic Control (Patent GB2534294)
  • Integrates with permanent traffic control systems for seamless urban traffic movement
  • Up to 34 heads
  • Can serve up to 9 Traffic Phases and 8 Pedestrian Crossings
  • Unique dual-band radio offering multi-channel communication ability
  • Compatible with UG405 protocol
  • ADSL cable or 3G/4G wireless signal connection
Now a managed service!

To improve the service delivery of UTC installations, Traffic Group Signals now provide a managed service. We now work with the traffic management partner and Highways Authority to configure and test the UTC master before it reaches the site, therefore taking the stress and delay out of road-side set-up.

Existing customers have the option of hiring any or all of the portable signal equipment required for the job or simply the master controller. For more information, please visit our UTC page.
