Lack of Co-ordination Makes New Smart Traffic System Redundant

Due to a lack of coordination among different government departments, the Unified ATSC (Adaptive Traffic Signal Control) system, which was proposed to be set up in Hyderabad, is in a state of limbo. To ensure reduction in congestion, seamless flow traffic flow, and improvement in traffic management and safety on roads, this system was set up. Approximately 100 pedestrian-friendly pelican signals and 150 new traffic signals were to be installed under this system, by a private agency across Cyberabad, Hyderabad, and Rachakonda Commissionerates.

The works are yet to take off, however. Also, the maintenance and operation of the existing 231 traffic signals under the HTRIMS (Hyderabad Traffic Integrated Management System) are not functioning properly, causing hardships to commuters.

A private agency had come forward to install the new pelican and traffic signals, but there was no coordination between the traffic police and GHMC in the selection of places for installing the signals because of which there has been a long delay in the execution of the project. The O&M contract period of the HTRIMS project with M/s Bharat Electronics Limited expired on 30th November last year, according to the sources. On November 13, a letter of acceptance was issued by the GHMC to IBI Group India Private Limited, for the commission of a city-wide ATSC system evaluated at Rs 59.86 crore.  As the city has witnessed a steep rise in the number of registered motor vehicles, the system has become a necessity. Pedestrian and road spaces, on the other hand, have not kept up with the vehicle density and growing population.
