The NHAI Introduces a New Surveillance System for Highways

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) introduced a new surveillance system for national highways in the country, taking a cue from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH). The NHAI’s new surveillance system is a part of its Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS), which also is known as Traffic Incident Emergency Management System (TIMS).

The Centre’s autonomous highways agency is planning to make the new system functional at 10 major Toll gates in the country by 2018. Later, the National Highways Authority of India will expand it to 200 Toll plazas. The MoRTH and NHAI propose that the new surveillance system will enhance security and traffic infrastructure at Toll gates. The autonomous agency is planning to execute the initial phase of the project in 6 months from the time of initiation.

Equipped with the latest technology, such as low-latency Internet Protocol (IP) cameras and advanced imaging systems, the new surveillance system will transmit real-time info

NHAI Introduce a New System as the Highways Overhaul Continues

The National Highways Authority of India’s (NHAI) revamping plans for the National Highways (NHs) of the country are in full force as it was announced recently that a surveillance system is set to be put for real-time updates of traffic congestion across all major toll plazas. In the next six months, this surveillance system will be operational on 10 plazas and there is a plan in place to extend it to 200. The surveillance system will work alongside the Incident Management System which was introduced by the autonomous agency of the Government of India earlier.

The Incident Management System (IMS), which was introduced by the National Highways Authority of India gathers data on incidents, such as accidents and notifies the command station. In case of such happenings, this system is equipped with facilities such as ambulances, cranes and tow-away vehicles to handle the situation responsibly and expeditiously. These amenities are placed at consistent distances on the highways in case of

Integrated Camera Surveillance at the Toll Plazas to Curb Traffic Congestion

Globalisation and digitisation together have been two of the primary contributing factors to the economic growth of India. It has not just improved the standard of living but also encouraged people to invest more in purchasing cars and other forms of vehicles. Owing to the rapid increase in the purchase of cars, the vehicular density on the roads has simultaneously increased as well. This is the reason behind the heightened levels of traffic congestion on the roads, highways and the toll plazas.

In order to deal with these rising issues concerning the overwhelming traffic congestion at the toll booths, the National Highways Authority of India has instilled a number of initiatives like that of Electronic Toll Collection, FASTag, NFC Toll payment systems and their latest endeavour being the installation of the video camera surveillance at the toll plazas. This initiative is currently in progress and will contribute to diminishing the traffic issues faced by the commuters during the toll

NHAI Advances Highways Sector with High-End Technologies

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is on a mission to integrate innovation and technology in the public sector to solve the challenges in highway infrastructure. The Centre’s autonomous agency is set to solve issues such as inadequate road infrastructure on national highways. To this end, the NHAI is constructing a cluster project to address severe issues in the roads and highways sector.

The National Highways Authority of India, under the leadership of CGM Akhilesh Srivastava, is implementing the GoI’s ambitious project Wayside Amenities (WSAs) to provide convenience and comfort to motorists while overhauling and modernising infrastructure. The WSAs is being constructed under three substructures - Highway Nest (Mini), Highway Village and Highway Nest.

The NHAI is facilitating amenities in the form of hygienic restaurants, food courts, 24X7 fuel stations, dhabas, spacious parking lots, hygienic restrooms, kiosks for sundry items, medical aid booths, helipads and more. Th

India Gets New Surveillance System for Incident Management

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) began the installation of a new surveillance system for India’s national highways as part of the Incident Management System (IMS) project (under the Bharatmala Pariyojna). The project will enable the IMS in monitoring the flow of traffic at Toll plazas. The NHAI has begun the task by equipping ten national highways Toll gates with the surveillance system and later will extend it to 200. The autonomous highways agency aims to eventually stock all Toll complexes in the nation with the new mechanism. The initial phase of the project is slated for completion in 6 months from the time of initiation.

Equipped with low-latency Internet Protocol (IP) cameras and special imaging technology, the new surveillance system will gather data on the traffic at Toll plazas and, through a secure local Internet connection, relay it to a command centre in a Regional Office (RO) governing the highway area. Once operational, the IP cameras will transmit time-s

How NHAI is Helping India Modernise its Highways

In a bid to modernise the national highways, the Government of India started a domestic cluster project with the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) at the helm. The Centre is subsuming these and several other similar road projects, started by the governments of the past, under an umbrella program named Bharatmala Pariyojna. Other projects under the NHAI’s Bharatmala include the National Highways Development Project (NHDP).

The cluster project involves several subprojects for integrating advanced technology with the highways sector and overhauling national highways. These subprojects include Wayside Amenities (WSAs), Electronic Toll Collection (ETC), Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS), industrial drones and remote sensing for highway projects, GPS tolling, and green highways.Of these, WSA, ETC, SukhadYatra, ATMS, and drones and LiDARs are already functional, and are in various stages of completion.

Domestic Projects

WSA consists of three substructures that provide civ
