Mott MacDonald helps trial Intelligent Amber Arrows in UK

Mott MacDonald is currently involved in the trialling of amber arrows. The main reason for trialling an amber arrow is to overcome confusion at complex traffic signal junctions where any combination of left, right and ahead movements may occur at different times within the signal cycle.

The project is being partly funded by the Highways Agency and the participating local authorities including Leicester City Council, Nottingham City Council, Manchester City Council and Bournemouth Borough Council.

While amber arrows are widely used throughout Europe, this is a significant development in the UK. Video surveys have been carried out at the four trial sites to assess driver behaviour before and after new arrows were installed. When the data analysis is complete a consultation process with the participating local authorities, Highways Agency, Department for Transport and the Traffic Control User Group will be undertaken.
