Imagine your brain juggling this many acronyms in a single paragraph:
As already announced by Mayor Boris Johnson, SCOOT (Split Cycle Offset Optimisation Technique) is playing a major role in reducing traffic delays across London, helping to improve Journey Time Reliability (JTR). TRL, in collaboration with UK traffic systems suppliers, developed the SCOOT urban traffic control system which is now co-owned by Peek Traffic Ltd, TRL and Siemens Traffic Controls Ltd.
The latest SCOOT MMX Service Pack 1 provides a facility to assist with improving the Journey Time Reliability (JTR) along critical routes. This was originally developed for Transport for London (TfL), where it is called JTR - GOLD (Journey Time Reliability - Games Operation Led Development), to assist them in controlling the journey along key corridors in London. Its first intended application was within the Olympic route network.
