A CONTROL centre for 11 real-time traffic lights in Mandalay were put on a test run on Tuesday ahead of the planned opening of the operation slated for next month.
The control centre, worth K270 million was built by the Mandalay City Development Committee in cooperation with Dream Light Technology Co Ltd.
Installation of the traffic light control systems on downtown roads is now nearing completion, said an official from the MCDC’s engineering department.
Underground sensors will inform the control centre of real-time vehicle volume levels to help alleviate traffic congestion in Mandalay city, he added.
So far, real-time traffic light controls had been installed only on high-traffic roads in Mandalay, where they are set to become fully operational next month.
