Our closed circuit television (CCTV) camera network allows the Traffic Operations Centre to view traffic conditions across parts of our network in real time. This means we can undertake a number of functions to keep traffic moving including traffic condition reporting and incident management.
In 2014, as part of the Traffic Congestion Management Program, an additional 21 CCTV cameras were installed at strategic locations across the Perth CBD. However, there are still a number of key locations across the metropolitan area that do not have CCTV coverage.
A further nine cameras have been installed across the metropolitan network to improve early incident and breakdown detection to allow us to respond faster to incidents and help reduce congestion.
By responding and recovering from incidents more efficiently we can reduce the impact of incidents across the road network. Improved CCTV coverage also means traffic signal phasing can be monitored and adjusted in real time to assist with traffic flow to help alleviate congestion during peak periods. We will also be able to provide improved traffic condition information.
The following locations are now fitted with new CCTV cameras:
- Mitchell Freeway at Karrinyup Road
- Mitchell Freeway near Leederville Station
- Marmion Avenue at North Beach Road
- Alexander Drive at Morley Drive
- Alexander Drive at Central Avenue
- Joondalup Drive at Hodges Drive
- Wanneroo Road at Joondalup Drive
- Wanneroo Road at Whitfords Avenue
- Wanneroo Road at Ocean Reef Road
