Melbourne operates 100km of managed motorways consisting of 76 metered ramps and is the largest managed motorway network in Australia carrying approximately 220,000 vehicles per day. The managed motorway technical tour involves a trip along the Monash Managed Motorway experiencing the operation of Melbourne’s longest Managed Motorway, including the on ramp operation at Warrigal Road and Ferntree Gully Road interchanges under real traffic conditions. During the trip on Monash Managed Motorway participants will be given the opportunity to experience and monitor the ramp metering operation using a customised tablet in real time. Participants will be given the opportunity to understand the University of Crete ramp metering algorithm parameters and operational functionality, including integration with the STREAMS freeway management system, freeway data stations, and the lane use management system. Also, the participants will be given an overview of the dynamic speed limit algorithm used to control vehicle speeds along the managed motorway network to minimise flow traffic break down.
