smart traffic management planTo improve mobility within the state smartly, the Uttar Pradesh government has engaged PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) for enhancing police surveillance and smart traffic management in the 12 proposed Smart Cities in UP.

The cities are Lucknow, Ghaziabad, Gautam Budh Nagar, Kanpur, Allahabad, Varanasi, Aligarh, Bareilly, Moradabad, Meerut, Agra and Gorakhpur. The UP Police has envisaged implementing Integrated Traffic Management System (ITMS) and Smart City Surveillance System (SCSS).

The UP Traffic Directorate has planned to utilise information technology to modernise key functions of traffic management, traffic control, traffic law enforcement and traffic information dissemination for smoother traffic flow and informed road users in the state.

UP Additional Director General of Police (ADG), Traffic, Anil Kumar Agarwal said it was essentially a state home department project, which was aimed at integrating the different aspects and infrastructure of policing and traffic management in the proposed Smart Cities for yielding better results and improving law and order.

“We have been able to convince the state home department that better traffic management, surveillance and enforcement at prominent city crossings have a direct bearing on the state law and order situation also,” he added.

PwC would suggest ways to share the common infrastructure of the police department, provide IT backbone and integrate the two projects of ITMS and SCSS going forward, he informed.
