Project Traffico builds traffic profiles using bus arrival times
Posted on Thu, 25 Oct 2018
Residents in Punggol should have heard the good news that the new link between Kallang-Paya Lebar (KPE) / Tampines Expressway (TPE) interchange and Punggol Central would be available by end Nov 2018, one year ahead of schedule. With another vital ingress and egress into and out of Punggol Town, the dynamics of Punggol road will surely change.
Here’s a simplified version of how it looks.

Typically, you enter or leave Punggol Town via the TPE, which is currently connected to Punggol Way or Punggol Road.
Before the dynamics of Punggol road are forever changed, I think it is good to do a recap. Traffico demonstrates a creative use of bus arrival times to infer traffic conditions. On top of providing status on congestions, it is also able to build traffic profiles using bus journey times computed from those arrival times.
