Urbanization, combined with the overall growth of the world’s population, could add another 2.5 billion people to urban populations by 2050. How will cities manage this growth and the congestion that comes with it?
Urban populations are growing, but most city infrastructure is already established. Accommodating increased congestion isn’t always as easy as building a road or diverting traffic. And you can’t just pick up a set of train tracks or move a river. Many cities were planned and built for much smaller populations – and that makes it tough to revamp for the changing needs of your city.
Growth and change can happen suddenly and quickly, but public funds aren’t always available when new and better traffic technology hits the market. It can be frustrating to know how to fix congestion issues but not have the budget to do it.
The goal is to prevent traffic congestion before it happens. To do it, you need to get ahead of trends, keep up with the latest technology, and anticipate what your city will need in the future. You need to choose a traffic solution that checks all the boxes today and will adapt to your city tomorrow.
Keeping traffic flowing efficiently is important for both convenience and safety. The more congestion, the more risks that are introduced on busy roadways. But if a vendor isn’t responding quickly enough to address a traffic technology issue, you may need to send your team out into a potentially dangerous situation.
