New Delhi: Underlining the need for better traffic management, Lt Governor Tejendra Khanna on Wednesday suggested introduction of intelligent traffic system on the lines of one installed in the Bus Rapid Corridor in South Delhi.

Khanna said the city must have a improved traffic system to overcome the problem of slow traffic and streamline the vehicular movement.

Khanna was speaking after visiting the Operation Maintenance Centre of Delhi Transport Corporation in Kashmere Gate.

The state-of-the-art Centre has been set up to streamline the movement of DTC buses across the city through IT-driven communication network. All the low-floor buses will be fitted with GPS systems and the centre will manage their movement through data received through GPS devices.

"We will have to modernize the traffic management," Khanna said.

The Delhi police had planned to carry out major overhaul of the traffic system by introducing IT-driven Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) before the Commonwealth Games last year to monitor and streamline vehicular movement but the project was yet to be implemented.

The police had identified 55 major roads, measuring 217.96 km, and about 200 intersections to be covered under the system.

The traffic signal system in the BRT corridor between Ambedkar Nagar and Moolchand Flyover was developed by Delhi Integrated Multimodel Transport System, which is a Delhi government entity, in cooperation with Delhi IIT.
