The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to put in place an intelligence traffic monitoring system to curb speeding vehicles, cameras with speed sensors will be installed every 250 metres along the coastal road project connecting the island city to the western suburbs.
The municipal body has planned to install Wi-Fi network on the whole stretch along with the tunnel section of the coastal road where motorists can enjoy uninterrupted internet access. The Wi-Fi access will also be for visitors who visit the parks and other facilities proposed along the coastal road.
The BMC is expected to float bids in the coming days for both Wi-Fi facility installations along with features of the intelligent traffic monitoring system. Apart from cameras with speed censors, the intelligence traffic monitoring system will also include digital hoardings that will give traffic and weather updates to motorists, as well as installation of noise barriers along the under-construction road.
