VertexGIS launches moving traffic regulation mapping app

Changes to the law regarding the enforcement of Moving Traffic Orders (MTROs) outside London have prompted much interest among local authorities who are keen to enforce regulations and thus facilitate the smooth flow of traffic throughout their districts.

VertexGIS has launched MTROmapAp (Moving Traffic Order mapping) to its Traffic Regulation Order mapping system.

The latest edition of TROmapAp is now a three-in-one system comprising Static TRO mapping, Moving TRO mapping and Consultations. All are available at a click from one screen.

VertexGIS co-founder Jenny Lonergan said: “The new system provides a much improved service for the public and at the same time simplifies and speeds up the TRO process for local authorities, reducing costs by as much as 40%, a very important factor in the current climate of real terms reduced government funding to councils.

“Because VertexGIS provides a service that includes the cloud hosted TROmapAp system you get all the advantages but none of the drawbacks of licencing proprietary TRO software. And as far as reliability goes, TROmapAp is created using the same GIS software and hosted on the same platform used by the UK military, whose most fundamental requirement is reliability.

“The new system brings all the TRO information to one screen, navigable in seconds, a real time saver and vast improvement on what was already best in class.”

MTROmapAp (Moving Traffic Order mapping) has gone live at Wokingham Borough Council to back up the local authority’s first tranche of MTRO restrictions being enforced under the new regulations. 

Geoff Hislop, parking manager at Wokingham, said: “VertexGIS has produced very clear and precise mapping of our first tranche of Moving Traffic Enforcement restrictions, which are labelled with TSRGD sign images familiar to all road users.

“The new version of TROmapAp which VertexGIS have provided, enables council staff and the public to easily switch between viewing static TROs, moving TROs and also view any proposed changes on the Consultations page. This is an excellent addition to our services, enabling customers to see both existing and proposed restrictions and make informed decisions as part of the consultation process.

“Having VertexGIS manage all our TRO mapping and amendment mapping requirements, saves time, reducing costs and helps all our processes to run efficiently.”

VertexGIS offers a package of cloud hosted Traffic Regulation Order mapping, online consultation drawings, surveying and all maintenance of TRO data.
