BANGALORE: The Bangalore traffic police (BTP) will soon have their own nerve centre with a 70 feet wide wall display for monitoring and coordinating traffic movement in and around the city.

The Traffic Management Centre (TMC) is currently located on Magrath Road and is operating from the premises of the Ashoknagar police station.

Discussing how the new TMC will help coordinate operations at length, ACP (Traffic) Dr M A Saleem said, “The wall display will be able to give us a consolidated bird’s eye view of the entire city. It will be 10 feet tall and 70 feet wide and will aid our police in getting a better understanding of traffic issues in the city.” The feed for the display will come from BTP’s network of around 180 cameras enabled with pan-tilt and zoom abilities which pass on information about traffic pile ups, jams, violations and other                       issues.

The city has been divided into 19 corridors with two shifts for each corridor. The traffic density is currently monitored with the aid of GPS devices fitted on 600 BMTC buses and the data from mobile service providers. The TMC also monitors signal timings.   

Built at a cost of `18 crore, the new building for the traffic police is coming up near the Queen’s Road Junction and will house the offices of the ACP (Traffic)  and the DCP.
