January 1 will not be the same for the people residing in Prayagraj city formally known as Allahabad. This new year brings a technology-filled year with a smart signaling system at all the 38 prominent crossings and inter-section made functional from January 1.
In order to ease the traffic issues faced by the public, the traffic police authorities have already made 15 prominent crossings with the smart signaling system functional and is working on installing 23 more.
In a bid to achieve the status of Smart City the traffic police authorities are taking these steps. The crossings where this signally system is made functional includes, Dhobi Ghat crossing, Traffic Chauraha, Rana Pratap crossing, UPPSC crossing.
“The traffic police department is ensuring that smart signaling system at all the 38 crossings and intersections of the city are made functional by December 31,” said SP (Traffic) Kuldeep Singh to an English Daily.
While commenting on the development, he said that with this smart signaling system the department would be able to manage the traffic well and will be able to utilize its team for other works. This would also help in easing the traffic chaos at various locations in the city especially Hindu hostel crossing and Hanuman temple chauraha.
