We got to have a peak at what happens at the control centre of Vic Roads. Victoria has a large portion of Australia's road users with the majority in and around Melbourne. We got to see traffic in real time and how the operators at the centre work to keep our traffic running smoothly everyday on our major roads and freeways. Everthing from diverting traffic around accidents and road works to sending out patrols to help with vehicle breakdowns is monitored and actioned in order to keep our travellers moving safely especially during peak periods.
Even traffic signals can be co-ordinated to give priority to emergency services, public access or VIP International visitors. They do a fantastic job, our road network would be a nightmare without the operators at Vic Roads.
