In Delhi’s Chandni Chowk Pedestrian Area, Plan a Smart Traffic System | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: After turning congested Chandni Chowk into a pedestrian zone, the Delhi government plans to use an intelligent traffic management system to manage vehicle movement and safety and reduce traffic violations in the region . The high-security CCTV system will be installed on the section between Lal Jain Mandir and Fatehpuri Masjid, which will then be the first public road in the capital to benefit from a fully integrated traffic management configuration.

So far, about 150 speed detection and red light violation detection cameras, part of the ITMS, have been installed by the Delhi Traffic Police across the city, but Chandni Road Chowk will be the first to get a full-fledged ITMS, with each camera given its own media access control and video management system, e-challan generation software, investigative scene creation server and other facilities. The total budget for this project, according to officials, will be Rs 2.4 crore.
The ITMS and CCTV system will be monitored from a central control room in Chandni Chowk and simultaneously from the ACP office in Daryaganj and the Delhi Police traffic control room in Todapur. The system will be integrated with the existing traffic police system.
According to PWD, approximately 150 high-security, HD-quality CCTV cameras with red light violation detection and automatic license plate recognition capabilities will be installed. The latter will determine the license plate of a wandering vehicle with an accuracy of at least 70% during the day and 60% at night. It can also track and store car color and license plates of at least 10,000 vehicles and alert the police if a vehicle is stolen or suspected. “The APNR system will have a wanted list with high functionality such as wanted, suspected or stolen vehicles,” a PWD official revealed.
The APNR will generate an alert if a vehicle is caught crossing the stop line, whether the signal is green or red, and will plot a vehicle’s movement on Google Maps to help police track it, said the manager.
Red light violation detection cameras will pick up license plates of vehicles ignoring the red signal and generate e-challans.
These systems will store archived video to help police reconstruct a crime scene whenever necessary. The call for tenders for the project has been launched. According to insiders, the project is being monitored by both Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Delhi High Court.
