Islamabad to get a smart traffic signal system

The Islamabad Traffic Police is working on installing a smart signal system at the Kashmir Highway and replacing the conventional traffic signals in order to manage and monitor the city in a better way. In the first phase, the smart system will be installed at signals from G-7 to G-11 Kashmir Highway including the junction of Kashmir Highway at 7th Avenue, G-9, G-10, H-11 and G-11.

The new signals are fitted with optical sensors and will alter the timings of the lights based on traffic volume that will help thousands of people using the highway. Kashmir Highway will have the new signals in the first phase and all other major thoroughfares in the subsequent phases.
