title Changes of access in local and global facilities due to the development of transport information systems TIS

summary The advent of communications technology has revolutionised the way that we conduct our affairs. Services are now more prolific andaccessible. Traffic Information Systems are helping to deliver those services. It is important to recognise which services are sought after by the public and how they can be improved by TIS (Traffic InformationSystems). Freight transport is one service that will increase due to the perceived chance in global access (Internet orders) and that canbe improved by TIS. If goods are to be regularly ordered from afar then they need to be cheaper and be delivered quickly. TIS systems through VMS signs, real-time traffic prognosis and public transport information are allowing us to conserve time as part of our daily lifestyles so that we can access our local facilities as readily as the improved freight networks allow us to access our global facilities. The correct implementation of TIS will make transport easier, and reduce congestion times, however it will only be able to do so, if it is possible to break the correlation of increase in GNP and traffic. Otherwise TIS services will still be useful but greatlymuted so.
