BERHAMPUR: Berhampur Municipal Corporation (BeMC) has decided to install integrated traffic management system in Berhampur. Chakraborty Singh Rathore, Commissioner of BeMC said that the city will have solar LED traffic lights which will have automatic timing system. Cameras plugged in with traffic lights will be set up at crowded intersections including Tata Benz Chowk, Town Hall, Kamapalli, Gate Bazaar and Courtpeta. The system will be integrated with e-Vahan, a flagship of e- governance application under the National Transport Project.

Rathore said that the system will help to detect traffic offences like wrong side driving and violation of speed limit. The system can capture images of number plates through which owners of the vehicles can be identified on e-Vahan, he added. He further said that the tender process for the system is in final stage and it will be functional by end of May 2019.
