Abstract

During the late 1950s, proposals were made that the linking and co-ordination of traffic signals, which had already been applied to produce green waves of traffic along major routes, could be extended to a network of highways over an area. Originally referred to as the area ‘control of traffic’, co-ordination over a network is now more usually termed ‘urban traffic control’.
