Ghaziabad: Under an integrated traffic management system, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has started installing CCTV cameras on Hindon Elevated Road to keep a tab on vehicles not complying with traffic norms.
Now commuters driving without helmet, wearing seatbelts and over-speeding on the elevated road would attract a challan. The authority has started raising the poles where the CCTV cameras would be placed.
In total, six-speed detection cameras will be installed on 10.3 kilometres long elevated road. The elevated road has six lanes. GDA will install a camera for each lane. The cameras will be equipped with automatic registration number recognition technology.
Two more cameras will be installed which will detect the violation of not wearing a helmet. GDA officials said that two guards have been deployed on entry and exit of the elevated road.
"Besides, the cameras are equipped with high-quality optical lenses and sensors which can detect the traffic violations by the vehicles and would record their registration numbers as well. The details will be then sent to traffic police to initiate the issuance of challans to the violators," said Santosh Rai, Secretary, GDA.
The maximum speed limit for vehicles plying on the elevated road is 80 kmph.
