Keeping Auckland Moving with Machine Learning

WSP is using data and machine learning to optimise traffic flow across Auckland’s motorway network. Join us to hear how.

Did you know the number of lanes in each direction on the Auckland Harbour Bridge changes multiple times a day according to traffic demand? When demand changes, the Harbour Bridge monitoring dashboard advises when the barriers should be moved to keep traffic flowing.

Local councils and agencies gather some data on how our roads are being used to ensure our networks run smoothly and to plan for future infrastructure needs. To help build a more complete picture, WSP estimates traffic volumes using machine learning algorithms and GPS data.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, Auckland System Management (ASM) have been monitoring the change in network demand due to different COVID restrictions. Data across the motorway network is being collected and processed to understand the impact of COVID on our roads.

Join us to hear how WSP is keeping Auckland moving.
