close up mic for lunch seminar adapted colourAbstract: This presentation will provide insight into the economics and algorithm that  underpin the dynamic, real-time allocation of scarce road space using traffic signal control in New South Wales. Topics covered will include the underlying operating system, SCATS, which was created and is continually developed in NSW– and adopted nationally and internationally – and evidence of the social benefit delivered to NSW by traffic control operation. The presentation will inform the audience, so they can interpret from an economic perspective the workings of the road system as they experience it, and provide economic analogies that are readily familiar and intuitive in a way that may be useful in their own work. You will never travel the road network the same way!
