The new expressway between Mumbai and Pune should have a functional traffic control system by October.

The Mumbai-Pune New Expressway’s Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) project, which is being carried out by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC), is nearing completion.

Sanjay Yadav, Joint Managing Director, MSRDC, stated that the ITMS would be operational as of October 15 of this year.

As a matter of fact, when the Mumbai-Pune New Expressway is operational, the ITMS project will be the first of its kind in Maharashtra.

The project’s goal is to improve expressway management and safety through the use of cutting-edge technology and intelligent cameras.

More than 430 high-quality cameras have been installed at a total of 106 locations along the expressway. Artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities are built into these cameras to find infractions. According to Yadav, the AI cameras are built to catch violations of more than 17 different kinds, including transgressions of traffic laws like speeding, lane violations, and other risky driving practices.

A Public Private Partnership (PPP) model was used to complete the ITMS project for an estimated cost of about Rs 60 crore.

To convey important information to commuters using the highway, it includes a visual messaging system. According to the MSRDC, this system could offer real-time updates on traffic conditions, road closures, and other pertinent information, including weather updates.

A Command and Control Center (CCC) has also been set up at Kusgaon to oversee the ITMS operations. The center will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will work with the Regional Transport Officials (RTO) and highway police.
