Red light jumping, driving in wrong lanes and rash driving are going to be a scene of past now as Noida Authority is gearing up to implement city surveillance system to penalise the offender. The surveillance system is expected to streamline traffic in the city.
The authority on Tuesday convened a meeting with traffic police and discussed it in details to how it should be implemented for monitoring the traffic flow effectively.
Initially, it identified the busiest 80 junctures for mounting CCTV cameras to catch the offenders jumping traffic lights, riding bikes without wearing helmets, also driving cars without wearing seat belts, rash driving and flouting the traffic rules in the city.
With help of advance technology, these cameras will be able to measure speed of vehicles. The authority is likely to rope in private agency for implementation of the system.
Ritu Maheshwari, Chief Executive Officer, Noida Authority, said that a tender for selection of a private firm will be issued by the next month as the authority aims to make it operational over a period of nine months from now onwards.
The authority, along with the traffic police and consultant Ernst & Young, will jointly work out all details related to this project before the tender is issued.
With installation of high-definition cameras, the concerned department will be able to monitor the traffic from control room.
Once the offenders are caught in cameras, e-challans for traffic violations will be issued and it will be dispatched to their given address. “The aim is to ensure discipline on roads, stop violations of traffic rules and ensure smooth movement of traffic,” an official said.
