  • Maintenance of all signals (junction and pedestrian crossings)
  • Setting signal timings and coordination of groups of signals
  • Moment by moment network management - utilising signals to deal with localised problems.
  • Concept design is the design at an initial stage of a scheme that involves traffic signals
  • Detailed design is the exact layout and placement of signal equipment
  • Junctions for new developments
  • Installation of new signals
