HYDERABAD: Murali, a software engineer who works in Madhapur spends at least one hour driving to his office everyday. Living in Secunderabad, he has no option but to drive all the way to Madhapur during the peak hours of traffic and in the process getting stuck in heavy traffic snarls.

Well, here is some good news. The Hyderabad Traffic Police (HTP) is soon going to launch a new mobile App which will make these wishes of Hyderabadis come true!

The new App which is yet to be named will give the accurate information of traffic congestion in all the junctions and important routes of the city. ‘Hyderabad Traffic Live’ is the suggested name, but it is yet to be finalised. Using this app on mobile phones, the drivers can avoid busy routes and take alternative routes.

Being connected with the Google Earth, the app is also capable of suggesting alternative routes to skip traffic jams. “There are nine applications within the App and each of them will serve a different purpose,” Jitender, ACP, Traffic, Hyderabad, said.

It is the first initiative of its kind by the city traffic police and it will be launched by the end of this month, he said. Talking further about the functions of the app, he said it is a multi-purpose app. “We can also track the movement of vehicles using the application. This will help to catch stolen vehicles,’’ he said.

It will be connected with the fast cameras installed at the major junctions to provide the traffic movement live. This App has been developed by Bharat Electronics Limited.
