IIT-M traffic survey from today

A comprehensive traffic survey, the first step towards setting up an Advanced Traveller Information System (ATIS) at 13 junctions in the vicinity of IIT-Madras, will commence on Sunday. The objective of the project is to set up intelligent electronic signboards that would provide information to motorists about congestion and suggest alternative routes. The survey might also be able to throw up some interesting revelations on the impact of Metro Rail work on the traffic flow on arterial roads.
