Solving Complex Technical and Institutional Problems to Improve Urban Traffic Flow in Wuhan, China

This case study reviews Wuhan’s experience in traffic management and its impact on improving traffic flows and safety, with a focus on two critical components: area traffic control systems and intersection channelization, which were implemented between 2000 and 2013. Those interventions provide lessons on the implementation of complex technical systems and the importance of institutional arrangements and capacity building in tackling traffic problems.
