Hamilton proposing citywide traffic cameras

Hamilton’s traffic operations manager is pitching an idea that could make driving in the city much more efficient.Martin White is proposing a five year, $10 million project that would see 1100 traffic monitoring cameras to be installed at 550 intersections throughout the city. The building of a control room at the roads operations centre at Upper Ottawa and Stone Church road has already been approved. If the person monitoring traffic decides it is necessary, they can alter the traffic lights and accordingly, traffic flow. Most people CHCH News spoke to this morning like the idea. “I like the idea of monitoring the traffic because downtown is very, very busy, and especially with the bus lanes now and parking on the other side, I think it is a great idea.”The proposal is expected to be tabled before the end of the year. 00:00:00 | 00:00:00::Projekktor V1.3.09
