Newcastle City Managing speed and traffic restrictions with GIS

It will take time for the whole city to be surveyed and all actions to be completed.  However, the most important thing is that the council has a successful and proven approach for achieving this goal. 

The Speed Management initiative has been up and running for several months, and Newcastle City Council is now evaluating its data collection methods to make sure that the data collected from the sensors is accurate and valid.  It then plans to use the GIS system to present evidence for new traffic calming measures that might reduce the numbers of accidents. 

At a later stage, the GIS information could also be used to post diversions on large electronic signs, to help improve traffic flow at peak times.  "Through our use of GIS, we can really make a positive impact on traffic flow within the city," says Taylor.

    From this article, I know Newcastle is in the North East, but I don't know what North East. I can't tell where Newcastle is located!! Would really like to know if it's North East U.S., England, etc.

    It's a sad day where the people who deal with GPS and GIS don't provide you with a location. This was a rather obvious oversight.
