Traffic updates of Bhubaneswar-Cuttack on FM Radio channels

Now people will get live traffic-related informations of Bhubaneswar-Cuttack roads on four FM Radio channels, which are active in the Twin City.

The Police Commissionerate of Bhubaneswar-Cuttack has launched the service recently.

The broadcast, which is all set to begin from Monday, will provide real-time information on traffic density on different routes, snarls, obstructions, rallies and dharnas, diversions and blockades due to accidents.

Data required for this purpose will be collated from the CCTV cameras installed at major junctions. Real-time traffic condition on roads will be monitored at the CCTV Control Room and passed on to the radio stations for broadcast.

The control room currently receives feed from 27 CCTV cameras installed at major junctions of the Capital. The completion of second phase of the project will see more than 70 per cent of the city covered. Where there is no CCTV surveillance, information would be collected through VHF.

The system, apart from delivering traffic information to motor vehicle drivers, would also suggest alternative routes to avoid congestion during peak hours, sources said.
