Data based designing of signals to avoid snarls

He was addressing a gathering during a symposium on ‘Infrastructure Development and Oil Conservation’,  organised jointly by the Bangalore Management Association and the Indian Oil Corporation in the City on Monday. The senior IPS officer said the traffic police are trying to introduce a data based designing of signal system.

Sood said that the traffic police are working on starting SMS facility to give latest updates on traffic scene. Cameras at various junctions are not just for penalising people but to help police in deciding the green time so that the traffic can be managed properly, he added.

The junctions increased in the City from 150 in 2007 to 330 in 2009 but he viewed that number of signals would come down with the new infrastructure projects in the City.
Speaking on the occasion, the Managing Director of Namma Metro N Sivasailam said the Metro Rail would save at least 5,000 litres of fossil fuel but for better results, the footpaths should be improved so that the pedestrians should feel safe to used them.
The General Manager of the Indian Oil Corporation B Ashok said, the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) is moving from an oil company to a energy generating company. He told the audience that the IOC will soon be connecting Chennai with Bangalore through a fossil fuel pipeline. “The project would take a couple of months,” said B Ashok.
