Traffic Control Centre (VKRZ)
Traffic Control Centre
The Traffic Control Centre
The Berlin centre is one of the biggest state-of-the-art traffic control centres in Europe.
The Traffic Control Centre is of particular importance for the work of the Berlin Traffic Control. By collecting all traffic information in one place, the Berlin Traffic Control is able to directly influence the traffic situation in and around Berlin and to minimise or even completely avoid disturbances.
Non-stop traffic monitoring
The staff of VKRZ monitors the Berlin light signal systems and VMS day and night, immediately eliminates interferences, and therewith ensures the smooth operating of the systems facilities.
Regional reporting office for traffic warning services
The regional reporting office is integrated into VKRZ, and by means of TMC procedures (Traffic Message Channel) transmits latest information on special events such as roadwork sites, or demonstrations to the associated radio stations and navigation systems.
