To streamline vehicular movement on the Mumbai roads, the Maharashtra cabinet recently approved Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) project worth Rs 891 crore. According to the CMO release, the project will help in smart signaling, identifying license number plates, control over-speeding vehicles and illegal parking, trace stolen vehicles and recovery of penalty. The statement also highlights that the system can help adjust signal time slot based on vehicular traffic on a road and its length.
Mumbai is a city with a population of 1.30 crore and 34 lakh vehicles commuting on the 2,000-kilometre road network. Here, the ITMS will help address issues of time consumed while travelling, money spent on fuel due to vehicle population and traffic jams and its subsequent effect on productivity.
