Comprehensive Traffic Observations (CTO)
A Comprehensive Traffic Observation (CTO), comprises combinations of various means of gathering traffic information simultaneously at various points during a long- or short- term period.
The above mentioned includes:
The continuous gathering of traffic and road loading information is a vital tool for authorities on local, provincial and national level. It also forms a vital informative tool for road and infrastructure management.
CTO reports containing valuable traffic engineering surveying information can be produced monthly, quarterly and annually.
TES has successfully completed 2 three-year CTO projects for Gauteng Province Roads and Transport (GPRT) and is now currently in the 1st year of our latest 3-year contract with GPRT. We also successfully completed a Contract with South African National Roads Agency SOC LTD (SANRAL) by conducting an average of 600 electronic counts per year for the last three years.
