Since their first introduction worldwide, at Bridge Street, Westminster in 1868, traffic signals have subsequently developed alongside the rapid growth of motorised traffic during the following years, to attain a complexity unimaginable to the early pioneers in the signal field. Do you know what these terms refer to and the differences between them? MAN, VA, FXT, CLF, UTC, SCOOT and MOVA. In addition to the history of pioneering signal development, Traffic Signals looks at the way in which modern signals operate and the equipment commonly used in current traffic control systems in the UK. It also looks at how signalised junctions and crossings are designed, explaining the fundamental design principles, and how these are used by modern software modelling tools to predict traffic operation. Included within Traffic Signals is a handy set of Standard Detail drawings which are commonly used when specifying and designing projects. The "A-Z of Traffic Signals" - Local Transport Today. "All you ever wanted to know about traffic signals" - Smart Highways. "...a comprehensive guide to traffic signals" - Traffic Technology International. ***** "...a comprehensive textbook on the subject" - customer feedback.
