Apart from the present 221 traffic signals in the capital city, another 90 new signals are going to come up soon, GHMC Commissioner Dana Kishore said today.

The Commissioner, along with Additional Police Commissioner (Traffic) Anil Kumar, held a review meeting on the functioning and maintenance of traffic signals in the city.

In the meeting, Kishore said that of the present 221 traffic signals, only 86 were functioning properly, and another 80 were functioning erroneously.

The remaining 55 were not functioning due to implementation of signal free U-turn ways and wherever HMR works were going on, he said.

The functioning and maintenance of these signals by Bharath Electronics Limited (BEL) was not satisfactory due to insufficient deployment of employees and other reasons, Kishore said. The BEL had been unable to rectify the defects in the non-functioning signals by August, he added.

The contract of BEL ends in November 2019.

To improve the traffic flow and avoid snarls and jams, apart from the present 221 signals, a further 90 signals would soon be added, Kishore said. He instructed the officials concerned to put up proposals and send them to the government for administrative sanctions.

Senior officials from the GHMC and the traffic police department attended the meeting.
