Smarter Freight Traffic Management

Our bid to the Department of Transport for Co-operative-Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) funding will support our congestion strategy programme.

The way we travel on our roads and how we maintain our roads is changing and we are committed to reducing traffic congestion across the county.

The Dartford tunnel is the most heavily used crossing within Europe. Consequently, the tunnel is subjected to severe traffic congestion and disruptions.

The use of traffic management systems would seek to improve traffic management and reduce congestion at key hotspots around Dartford. This would create safer and more efficient local road networks.
