New control room to better manage Madurai-Kanniyakumari traffic

The National Highway Authorities India (NHAI) has set up Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) Control Room Centre at Madurai Kanniyakumari Tollway (MKTL) and Kanniyakumari Etturvattum Tollway (KETL). South Zone Inspector General of Police Asra Garg inaugurated the ATMS centre in the presence of NHAI Madurai Regional Officer Vibhav Mittal.

“Over 100 high-definition CCTV cameras, speed limit signage, road markings and other road traffic-related instructions, have been installed by the NHAI as a part of the ATMS unveiling. They are also planning to set up ATMS control room toll plazas on all roads across the country, which will help in monitoring credentials of the vehicles, including registration, insurance, etc. The NHAI will share information on violations with the local police,” sources said.

An official from the NHAI said at least one toll plaza control room will be made available at every 50-km stretch along the Madurai-Kanniyakumari NH 44, which is approximately 243-km long. “We will deploy officials to monitor the roads round the clock. The main objective of ATMS is to regulate traffic, control speeding of vehicles and to impose penalty.”
