Ever wondered who/ what changes the green light to red? Who manages incidents, like crashes and breakdowns?  Main Roads has joined with Open House to provide an insight into the workings of the Traffic Operations Centre. This is a great opportunity to see the people behind the traffic and road cameras that manage and coordinate our road system. Main Roads manages over 18,000km of road over the state comprising of highways, freeways and major arterial roads, and is one of the largest geographically spread road agencies in the world.  We did the math and you could drive from Perth to Bunbury and back 45 times, Perth to Broome and back 4.5 times - that’s huge!  Get behind the scenes of this amazing facility.


*Please note: Large Bags and Backpacks will need to be left at the reception area with security and all visitors with bags will be subject to a bag check on entry
