The challenge

The challenge - increasing transport pressures and new technologies.

Congestion on roads and public transport cost NSW $6.1 billion in 2015. This will rise to $12.6 billion in 2030 based on increasing demand due to population growth and constrained transport networks.

We want to:

  • Proactively address congestion on major routes
  • Adapt to breakthrough technologies
  • Inform customers to make better transport choices
  • Respond more efficiently to transport incidents 

Growing demands on the transport network due to population and economic growth are contributing to increasing levels of congestion on roads and pressures on the public transport network.

Emerging technologies appear dynamic and exciting on the surface but they also represent a challenge in terms of obsolescence. We require solutions which accommodate the pace of change and our customer’s multi-modal journey requirements. 

Current capability and capacity of TfNSW’s Transport Management Centre (TMC) technology systems, processes and resources prevent maximisation of effective decision making, meaning the full potential of existing and proposed network infrastructure cannot be realised.

About the program 

The ICMP is a package of works that will deliver a multi-modal, proactive network management platform, leveraging emerging technology and predictive analytics to deliver more reliable journeys for our customers, improving:

  • Situational awareness through a real-time view across all modes of transport 
  • Information on journey choices to the customer 
  • Incident response and clearance times 
  • Network efficiency through proactively managing the transport network 
  • Automated decision support capability 
  • Coordination across all modes providing network wide operational decision making
