Mott MacDonald helps upgrade UTMC system in Greater Manchester

Mott MacDonald is working with Greater Manchester Urban Traffic Control Unit (GMUTC) to upgrade its urban traffic management and control common database system (UTMC).

As part of the project, global management, engineering and development consultancy Mott MacDonald will be updating GMUTC’s existing system to UTMC V2, the latest edition of the UK-wide ITS interface specification.

The benefits of using the new system, which is based on Mott MacDonald’s common data management facility, include an enhanced user interface for easier control room operation, and improved management of accidents, events, incidents and roadworks, allowing for an improved shared view of the network.*

Other highlights include journey time monitoring of local roads and motorways, car park management covering over 50 car parks across Manchester, Stockport and Wigan** as well as enhanced strategic management, providing operators with the ability to implement automatic responses to pre-defined network conditions such as abnormal journey times.

Elaine Rodgers, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, “Upgrading the existing UTMC system will have knock-on benefits for the travelling public in the Greater Manchester region, as they enjoy an improved level of operational efficiency and monitoring of the road network.”
