South Pine/Eatons Crossing Roads Intersection

Thu 3 Nov 2016

Traffic signals  at this intersection were recently upgraded to include Emergency Vehicle Priority technology.

This enables emergency vehicles to automatically trigger traffic light sequences to change along the most direct route when responding to an emergency call. 

This means a green traffic light signal is given to emergency vehicles, when safe to do so, in the direction of that emergency response call.

By clearing the path ahead emergency vehicles can respond quicker to emergencies.
