Speaker: Adam Crowther – Strategic City Transport Services Manager – Bristol City Council

Bristol City Transport Operations Centre is a state of the art, multi-purpose centre hailed as ‘world class’ by emergency planning chiefs which opened in October 2017. It brings together some of Bristol’s critical support services and acts as a control centre in the event of a major emergency.

The new centre houses the council’s Emergency Control Centre, Traffic Control Centre and Community Safety (CCTV) Control Rooms together in a single space for the first time. These teams provide essential public safety services that utilise 700 CCTV cameras around the city.

A large part of the facility’s role is to manage the city’s traffic network and monitor the flow of traffic around Bristol, making adjustments to signals and putting diversions in place to keep traffic moving. The centre also provides a place for staff from transport providers to work together with the council’s traffic management team, providing greater reliability in public transport services and more accurate real time information about services.
