Hi Nick,

We’ve used this in Lancashire during a diversion for road works, and utilising UTC to generate the demands only during peak hours. No signing was considered necessary. I think a permanent arrangement would be an unecessessary and unjustifiable imposition on motorists, but for traffic management during restricted well defined hours would be OK, and assumed to be absent pedestrians. A UTC response to congestion detection seems a very good operational idea.
