How the CTRMA has Improved the Flow of Traffic Through Technology

In the wake of the rapid technological development, CTRMA aims to incorporate the innovative traffic flow solutions to road construction projects. By collaborating with a vast array of IT firms, CTRMA can provide a vast array of technology solutions that can ease the traffic flow. There are plenty of ways to create the smart roads, and the best strategy is to incorporate the fiber optic cables in the infrastructure projects. Other strategies include incorporating the GPS and Wi-Fi technologies in the roads. By incorporating several ducts in the road reserves, providing such services to the neighboring estates and neighborhoods is quite easy. If you are looking for directions, this system can give you the warning signs if you take the wrong lane or use the wrong exit.


Sharing the ride

CTRMA partnered with several firms including Metropia to create a broad array of mobile traffic apps that come in handy when it comes to monitoring the traffic system while providing the real-time directions and alternative routes to the motorists. Another way to ease congestion is to avoid the number of empty seats by using the carpooling concept. By encouraging the commuters to share the ride, the carpooling app can enable the motorists to find some passengers to fill up their seats and share the ride.


Alternative modes of transport

The dependence on the automobile is one of the ways by which the roads become congested. The CTRMA encourages the people to cycle by creating a broad range of bike-friendly routes in the urban centers. Bikes can help to reduce the congestion by lessening the numbers of cars on the roads. The urban roads suffer the most when it comes to the traffic jams. By borrowing from the most populated countries such as India, the residents will love the concepts since they understand that using a bike is convenient during the jam.


Innovative intersections

Although the roundabouts provided the ultimate solutions in the past decade, they have become obsolete today. CTRMA believes in creating a cloverleaf with several lanes at different levels. Remember that the pedestrians and cyclists cannot use the cloverleaf for safety reasons. As such, the CTRMA proposes introducing a series of bridges and ramps to help the cyclists and pedestrians to cross from one side of the road to another safely.
