With regard to the forthcoming switchover to digital, I was wondering where this might leave the RDS signal (and therefore TMC), which is currently broadcast with the FM radio signal.

Once the switch to digital has taken place, will the RDS signal cease to be broadcast?

With a digital radio signal, how will TrafficMaster/iTIS broadcast their TMC signal to motorists?

Digital switch over is for freeview television only, it doesn't effect FM broadcast radio stations.

As already said, there are no plans to switch off FM (at the moment). However, there are already limited trials of traffic via digital (DAB) radio going on.
