Noida to get intelligent traffic management system
The Gautam Budh Nagar Traffic Police is planning to launch Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) to improve traffic management in Noida.
The city police will now penalise vehicle users committing traffic violations through online challan with the help of sensor-based cameras.
These cameras will be mounted on 251 major road intersections and 91 T-points in the district and will be directly linked with the traffic control room.
Minor modifications of over 100 road intersections will also be carried out.
“Under Intelligent Traffic Management System, 251 road intersections and 91 T-points will be mounted with hi-tech sensor-based cameras while some major road intersections will be redesigned. Noida traffic police will also get 91 more traffic constables for the district.
“The underpass and elevated road projects will be completed by the end of this year which will further boost the traffic management system,” said Prabal Pratap Singh, Superintendent of Traffic Police, Noida.
“A Digital Project Report has been prepared for ITMS and soon it will be launched in the city,” Singh added.
Under ITMS, all the cameras installed will be inter-connected. The signals will automatically turn to
green with the increase of the traffic.
If the vehicles move slow and steady, they will get rest of the signals green and this will help provide more road safety and better traffic movement.
Police will keep a constant watch on the traffic violators through these cameras and they will be penalised through online challan system. People will also be allowed to pay their challan online. The concept will promote the idea of cashless economy.
Also, to cope up with the rising complaints related to traffic in the city, 91 new traffic police constables will be deployed in the region.
