CCTV and Command & Control centre to improve Traffic Management in Tirupur
Tirupur City Corporation will establish a command and control centre at the corporation building to improve traffic management and also to enhance internal securityunder the Smart City Mission.
The state government has appointed a committee to decide on how the smart city mission should be utilised for cities other than Chennai. The committee would appoint the consultants of the projects to be undertaken, and detailed project reports (DPRs) would also be prepared by those consultants.
Under the information technology and digitalisation programme of the smart city mission, internal security measures will be undertaken. With similar DPRs likely to be planned for all cities, Tirupur corporation may get more than 200 closed-circuit television cameras. Feed from those cameras would be displayed on monitors at the command and control centre. They have allotted 3,000sqft for setting up the centre. Also, live feed from CCTV cameras installed by residential associations and organisations will also be accessed.
The centre will also be used for improving traffic management. The major objective would be to reduce crime rates and road accidents using modern equipment. The civic body would spend Rs 150Cr for establishing the centre.
