New Project to Help Reduce Congestion in Australian Suburbs

A new project designed to help reduce congestion in our suburbs has been launched today, using data collected from pedestrian smartphones and cutting-edge traffic-counting technology to track patterns of movement in a bid to better plan cities and build infrastructure where it is most needed.

Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities Paul Fletcher said the Smart Pedestrian Project, funded under the Turnbull Government’s Smart Cities and Suburbs Program, would help Liverpool City Council in Sydney’s west make better decisions about transport and urban planning by measuring real-time pedestrian and vehicle movements around the CBD.
 “Traffic congestion is a major problem in many of our urban centres, including Liverpool, and this project is a great example of how we can better use technology and data to make our cities better places to live and work,” Mr Fletcher said.
