Delhi Lieutenant-Governor Tejendra Khanna on Wednesday suggested installation of the Intelligent Signalling System and cameras at all the junctions in Delhi saying it would help a great deal in streamlining the traffic management in the city.
Mr. Khanna made the observation during a visit to the Operations Control Centre set up by Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System Limited at ISBT Kashmere Gate.
During his first visit to the OCC, Mr. Khanna was briefed about the five main projects that are connected to the centre. The OCC helps in the efficient management of traffic flow, monitoring of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor as well as the bus clusters through the integration of various transportation technologies like Intelligent Signalling System (ISS) and Automatic Vehicle Location System (AVLS).
The OCC, he was told, allows for the control and monitoring of traffic through the ISS installed on the BRT corridor. The 24 cameras installed at the 17 junctions provide live feeds to the control centre of all activity on the corridor, thus paving the way for recording of violations and incidents.
He was also told that the Global Positioning System installed on the cluster buses transfers continuous data on the location of the cluster buses to the OCC. This apart, the Centre also stores data captured on the Electronic Ticketing Machines (ETM) as well as the newly introduced e-challan machines.
