© 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG. The increasing number of vehicles in the UK is putting strain on the motorway infrastructure. Smart Motorways have been implemented to reduce congestion. To test systems before they are physically built, they are simulated using objects models and GIS data. This paper has modelled a new smart traffic light system for a slip road joining a smart motorway. The smart traffic light models have been simulated alongside driver behavior models which together show that a smart traffic light system can adapt to continuously fluctuating traffic flow. The smart traffic light system reduced the number of congestion alerts by 80% on the smart motorway.
