WORKS, MUNICIPALITIES & URBAN PLANNING MINISTRY ACTIVATES PHASE 1 OF THE ‘SCOOT’ SYSTEM
The Ministry has recently commenced the operation of the newly developed version of the Traffic Signals Control System ‘SCOOT’, which coordinates between traffic signals existing close to each other to provide the green light wave to traffic with the highest concentration and therefore reduce waiting time or frequent stops between traffic signals.
The first phase of the project comprises of linking 21 traffic signals, including 15 signals in North Manama and the Diplomatic Area and 6 others in Central Manama. While, the second phase comprises of linking 17 traffic signals along the Airport Avenue in Muharraq, the Palace Avenue and Al Fateh Highway in Manama.
The advantages of “SCOOT” system:
· The system can be used to detect the number of vehicles passing through pre-determined traffic locations 24/7.
