A total of 14 Smart City projects would be handed over to the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) by January-end, civic chief Vikram Kumar said on Tuesday.
“The smart city development corporation will soon be dissolved. So, the projects, most of which are related to the garden department, will be taken over by the PMC. The civic administration will deploy a dedicated staff for operating these projects,” Kumar said, adding that the administration is also exploring an option to generate revenue from these projects.
According to Kumar, other projects like Command and Control Centre at Sinhagad Road will be jointly operated by the Pune civic body and Pune police.
The centre will be used for monitoring as well as data collection. The administration will also take over 163 variable message display boards that will be used for commercial purposes.
“The PMC will also operate the adaptive traffic management system (ATMS). The decision of its future expansion will be taken in due course of time,” Kumar said.
The important features of the ATMS include provisions for vehicle detector sensors at signals that will gauge the traffic volume at chowks. “The real-time feeds will go to the command and control centre. Based on this, the duration of signals can be changed,” a civic official said.
The civic body had claimed that after implementation of the ATMS there will be increase in traffic signal efficiency and better road safety. “The system is being implemented at 125 junctions in the first phase. Later, it will be expanded to 261 more junctions,” the official said.
“Around Rs 58 crore will be required for completing the pending projects of the smart city development corporation. We will approach the state government for funds,” the official added.
