NEW DELHI: In its bid to monitor traffic snarl at toll plazas and to take quick action to ease vehicle flow, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will put a video surveillance system for real-time mapping of congestion at all major toll plazas. In the next six months, the system will be operational at 10 plazas and will be extended to another 200 where daily traffic flow is more than 10,000 vehicles.

Each toll plaza will get high quality cameras for providing real-time feed to the command and control room at regional offices (ROs) and also at the NHAI headquarters. This will be a 24×7 facility. Officials said execution of work has commenced and it will be completed in next six months. NHAI has already connected all RO offices with 100 mbps internet network connectivity.

“The cameras will continuously give pulse feedback (time stamped photos) to NHAI Command Control Room and ROs Command Room every 30 minuets, but when queuing starts at any toll plaza and the line increases beyond an imaginary line set for IP camera, the camera will switch to video mode and will start streaming videos at regular intervals with alarm and alerts as per escalation matrix. If queue is not cleared in 30 minutes, matter will be escalated to RO and after one hour to NHAI headquarters,” said Akhilesh Srivastava, chief general manager at NHAI.

Internet connectivity has also been provided to the empanelled “drone agencies” for a real survey of projects. Drones will be used for getting real-time update on construction of projects.

Highways minister Nitin Gadkari said NHAI will soon sign an agreement with Korea Expressway Corporation, which manages its entire highway network from its Traffic Management Centre using sophisticated audio-visual technology, to bring in best technology for traffic management on highways. “The centre has 4View processors, which enable the personnel deployed there to see over 70 separate images and they can view the entire highway network on the screen. By simply entering a vehicle registration number in the system they can track the vehicle quickly,” said an official, who visited the centre with Gadkari last month.
