Stability of some decentralized traffic signal control policies for urban traffic networks is studied. It is proven that, whenever the arrival rates belong to a certain region -which is the largest where stability is possible- the resulting traffic network dynamics admit a globally asymptotically stable equilibrium. The results rely on the use of some entropy-like Lyapunov functions previously considered in the context of stochastic queuing networks.
