BANGALORE TRAFFIC POLICETRAFFIC MANAGEMENT IN BANGALORE CITY.
Traffic ScenarioBANGALORE CITY IS EXPERIENCING: 1. Phenomenal growth in vehicular traffic , 2. Traffic congestion and bottlenecks, 3. Road accidents leading to deaths and traumatic injuries, 4. Air and noise pollution, 5. Crumbling transport infrastructure, 6. Poor enforcement of rules and regulations.
Traffic Scenario in Bangalore City Poor enforcement of traffic rules
What is BTRAC 2010? Bangalore Traffic Improvement Project B-TRAC 2010 is the ‘first of its kind’ project in the country to address the issues of traffic congestion, safety etc by utilizing the latest traffic management technologies and techniques, which are appropriate to our context. This will give the much- needed scope for larger infrastructure projects to be planned and implemented for improving the transportation system in Bangalore city .
Components of BTRAC (Bangalore Traffic Improvement Project)• Junction Improvement• Intelligent Transport System• Surveillance & Enforcement Cameras• Erecting of Road Signage• Painting of Roads• Education & Creating Awareness to Publics.
Components of BTRAC BTRAC 2010 – Ongoing initiative • Junction Improvements The capacity of Junctions to be improved by making bell shapes, channelising islands, proper markings, and proper geometrics.
Components of BTRAC Up-gradation/ New Traffic Signal - 330 locations 1.Linked to TMC 2.Different Time cycles for each Junction; separate for Saturday/ Sunday 3.LED Lamp heads 4.Direction Boards 5.Disable friendly- auditory signal during exclusive pedestrian crossing time 6.Solar panels for power supply 7.Single agency for maintenance 8.ICMS-automatic call logging for lamp failure/ power failure detection
Components of BTRAC Traffic Surveillance Camera – 179 Nos Surveillance Camera collects real time video from the specified locations by using Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) dome camera system and transmits the image to the Traffic Control Center through an IP network.
Components of BTRAC Traffic Enforcement Camera - 5 Nos Enforcement Systems captures over-speed violations and transmits to the TMC
Components of BTRAC Variable Message Signs (VMS) -20 Nos Advice Road Users about: • Road Incidents • Diversion • Speed Restriction • Safety Messages • RF connectivity to TMC
Components of BTRAC Standardization of Sign boards – 30000 Road side traffic sign boards help in regulating traffic by imparting guidance to the road users No advertisement / sponsorship
Components of BTRAC Road Markings – 1,12,500 Sq.mtrs Reflective thermoplastic road markings are used as a means of controlling and guiding mechanism of traffic for smooth flow along the guided paths of travel Over head Signage – 450 locations Highlights Installation of over head sign boards for guidance of road users.
Components of BTRAC Street Furniture Flexible cones with reflectilane dividers and reflectivity ensures more visibility ve tapes are used as during night times. Cat eyes – 39,250 Nos. Highlights The cat’s is a reflective safety device used in road construction and is a pavement marker
Components of BTRAC Interim Traffic Management Centre @ Ashoknagar The Traffic Management Center (TMC) is the hub of a transportation management system, where information about the transportation network is collected and combined with other operational and control data to manage the transportation network and to produce traveler information. It will integrate following: • Traffic signals – Receiving real time information/data • Surveillance camera – Beaming live images from surveillance camera Enforcement camera - Recording and beaming traffic violation data • Wireless traffic control rooms – 2 way communication between the field staff and TMC to manage the traffic effectively on real time basis • VMS to give real time traffic information to public –Live relay from TMC • IVRS and Traffic helpline
