feature of the STREAMS ITS Platform, road traffic authorities benefit from a fully integrated system that includes all the critical managed motorways tech- nologies required to sustain near-capac- ity peak periods flows and reduce travel times whilst improving day to day reli- ability and safety outcomes. STREAMS supports all the necessary
