Japan To Fund Bengaluru's Advanced Traffic Management Project
Japan will offer a grant of more than Rs 72 crore to install an advanced traffic information and management system in Bengaluru. Under the Advanced Traffic Information and Management System in Bengaluru, a smart signalling system and traffic congestion length measurement sensors would be set up in the city. The project is likely to be completed in three years.
The grant from Japan was expected to contribute to strengthening connectivity and industrial competitiveness of the local economy by improving traffic congestion and urban environment, an official release said.
"After the completion of this project, this new system will help reduce congestion length, currently reaching 550m at longest, by 30 per cent, at interchange facing heavy congestion, and contribute to enhancing the convenience of urban transportation and revitalising the local economy," it said.
