We are delighted to offer our members the opportunity to visit the Transport for London Control Centre.

This fascinating tour will give you an insight into how real time incidents, that are happening across the Transport for London road network, are monitored and managed.

These incidents can range from broken down vehicles and collisions to demonstrations and sporting events. You will learn about the different tools that are used to do this, such as TIMS (Traffic Information Management System), CCTV, VMS (Variable Message Signs) and UTC (Urban Traffic Control) and social media. TfL also manages the bus network, dealing with incidents and diversions as well as 12 tunnels in London.

The visit will include a presentation and an overview of functional areas such as Incident Response, Network Operations and social media. There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions so it should be a really informative and interesting morning.

This event is only available to Women in Transport members and numbers are limited to 15.

Please note that the visit will be hosted in the Viewing Gallery, adjacent to the Control Room Floor. We will be able to see what's going on but will not be allowed to enter the control room itself.

Kindly hosted by:
