New cen­tre will mon­i­tor traf­fic

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A new traf­fic con­trol cen­tre is to be built in Al Bar­sha to cover the road net­work in the area. The plan by the Roads and Trans­port Au­thor­ity (RTA) will ex­pand the use of cam­eras and tech­nol­ogy for mon­i­tor­ing traf­fic move­ment, such as mo­bile cam­eras. There will also be mo­bile and vir­tual mes­sag­ing signs ( VMS) to in­form road users about the traf­fic con­di­tions, es­pe­cially dur­ing emer­gen­cies or when con­struc­tion work is un­der way. Matar Al Tayer, Di­rec­tor-General of RTA, an­nounced the plan dur­ing an in­spec­tion tour to Deira Traf­fic Sys­tems Con­trol Cen­tre (pic­tured above). The Deira cen­tre is linked to 455 junc­tions and 356 cam­eras which help gauge con­ges­tion, de­tect ac­ci­dents and break­downs and cal­cu­late jour­ney times.
