Adaptive Traffic Signals in Bengaluru
The Bengaluru City Traffic Police (BCTP) has decided to replace all fixed-time cycle signals with adaptive signals. This model will be expanded across the entire city. The State Cabinet cleared funds to the tune of ₹85Cr for the project. Tenders will be issued for 453 new adaptive signal systems — 353 to replace the existing fixed-time-cycle signals and 100 new ones, mostly at previously unregulated junctions in the outer zones of the city.
In the second phase, the traffic police aim to create a network of adaptive signals so that a signal can communicate with the next volume of traffic it has let pass which will help create green corridors.
