On-road Traveller Information System (OTIS)
We’re improving our ability to manage the Greater Hobart arterial road network, provide information to road users and respond to incidents at key locations.
The On-Road Traveller Information System (OTIS) is a real-time data recording system being introduced to the Greater Hobart region by the Department of State Growth to build on the existing infrastructure and technology, to enhance the management of the Greater Hobart arterial road network. The project will be jointly funded by both the Australian and Tasmanian Governments.
OTIS will comprise of Variable Message Signs (VMS) installed over 12 key locations and Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras installed over two key locations around greater Hobart within the City of Hobart, Glenorchy City Council, City of Clarence, and Kingborough Council municipalities.
The installation of additional VMS and CCTV cameras will allow road users to make informed decisions about their travel routes in real time in response to changing traffic conditions due to weather, crashes or other unplanned incidents.
VMS will allow the State Roads Traffic Management Centre to communicate messages in real time to road users who are already on the road, advising of changed traffic conditions due to weather, crashes or other unplanned incidents. When not required for incident response, the VMS will display road safety messages and or current travel times to key destinations.
Information captured by the CCTV cameras will only be used by the Traffic Management Centre (TMC) for the purpose of monitoring traffic and road conditions.
Prior to the installation of the VMS and CCTV cameras the project team will be doing service location survey, geotechnical field investigations and engineering surveys across all key locations between Monday, 1 August and Wednesday, 17 August 2022.
The project is in the Greater Hobart area, which includes the City of Hobart, City of Clarence, Glenorchy City Council and Kingborough Council municipalities. It is in the Clark and Franklin electorates.
