US$3 million traffic signal system for Harare

traffic_signalsHARARE -- A new computerised traffic signals system to cost US$3 million is being planned for Harare in a bid to end frequent breakdowns of traffic signals in the capital, according to a Harare City Council engineer, George Munyonga.

Munyonga told recent engineers congress in Harare that the planned new system would be partly powered by solar energy. The city of Harare has been experiencing severe breakdown in traffic signal systems due to dilapidated infrastructure and power outages.

This has resulted in traffic congestions mainly in the central business district and at times accidents at traffic signal points.

Munyonga said that the initiative would target all the 188 traffic signal systems in the city of Harare. He also said that the project would be funded by the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) through the Zimbabwe National Roads Administration (ZINARA) who will collaborate with the Harare City Council on the project.
