Parallel Signal System Introduced To Decongest Traffic In Bhubaneswar
Bhubaneswar: The traffic situation has improved significantly after the introduction of parallel traffic signal systems on Jayadev Vihar-Nandankanan Road, said DCP Sagarika Nath on Sunday.
The system has been set up at main traffic posts along the 12 km stretch, which includes Jaydev Vihar, Nalco Square and Damana Square. Patia and KIIT Squares will also get the system soon.
The smart system helps to clear traffic quicker. For example, vehicles coming from Jayadev Vihar to Nandankanan and vice versa are being given green signal simultaneously at Nalco Square. Vehicles from the opposite directions wanting to go straight, will have to wait on the central and left lanes till the signal changes. During this period, signal will be given to the vehicles moving from Jayadev Vihar towards Sainik School and from Nandankanan towards Kalinga Hospital.
The newly-opened traffic post at OMFED Square was shut down as it didn’t help with better traffic flow, she added.
