HCM City to build Vietnam’s biggest traffic control center

Published: 15/03/2011 05:00



HCM City plans to invest
Eur131 million to install cameras at over 1,400 crossroads, which are connected
to a traffic control center.

HCM City Department
of Transport and Sagemcom, a French company, has finalized the detailed plan to
build Vietnam’s most modern
traffic control center in Vietnam.

Accordingly, all
crossroads in HCM
City will be installed
with cameras and other electronic equipment to monitor traffic flows. All images
will be sent to a traffic control center for analysis. The center will directly
monitor traffic lights, instead of traffic police officers on the spot.

Experts said that
this project is a need for controlling HCM City’s
traffic congestion during rush hour.

Le Toan, HCM City
Department of Transport’s deputy director, said that this project will be
implemented in three phases, funded by ODA from the French government.

The plan will be
sent to the Ministry of Planning and Investment to register in the list of
projects acquiring French ODA.

The southern mega
city currently has over 1,400 crossroads, including 600 with traffic lights.
The city has installed cameras at some crossroads but these cameras are
controlled independently.
