Guide to Traffic Management Part 9: Traffic Operations is concerned with the day-to-day operations that support the provision of road services to road network users. It introduces the concept of traffic operations as underpinning road user services, covers the major types of services provided and outlines the role of intelligent transport systems (ITS) in delivering these services.

Part 9 provides guidance on the configuration and operation of systems, both ITS and manual, supporting traffic operations including network monitoring systems, incident management, traffic signal systems, congestion management, freeway/motorway management systems and traveller information systems.

Edition 3.0 has added materials on smart motorways, traffic signal techniques to support network operation planning and references to cooperative intelligent transportation systems (C-ITS). More specific amendments include pedestrian protection, pedestrian push buttons, single point urban intersections, diamond diverging interchanges, bicycle detection, pedestrian countdown timers, filtering through opposing traffic, and roundabouts.
