Variable message signs on Territory roads

The Northern Territory Government is installing thirty (30) Variable Message Signs (VMS) across the Territory to provide timely and accurate information to travellers.

This project is jointly funded by the Australian Government and Northern Territory Government.

The signs will be integrated with traffic operations system - Intelligent Transport Systems, so the signs will display messaging based on real-time road information.

Each sign will operate under a trial period until setup is complete.

Signs may not always be active. Messages will only appear when required to alert road users of changes to conditions and road safety.

The signs will enable efficient management of traffic flows in the event of road crashes and congestion. The signs will also enable information to be provided to motorists about road closures, traffic detours and emergencies, as well as other road safety messages.

Installation will be staged across the Territory and works have commenced in the Darwin and Palmerston areas.
