President Mahama visits the New York Traffic Management Center
President John Dramani Mahama says the introduction of the intelligent traffic signal systems which will be rolled out in his second term will “ease traffic in the major cities.”
He said this when highlighting the 2016 manifesto of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC)’
According to him, the intelligent traffic lights can tell which side of the road is experiencing heavy vehicular traffic and will immediately give priority to that aspect of the road.
The idea “is to enhance productivity since a lot of man hours are spent in traffic daily, especially in the major cities”, added.
Speaking as the co-host of the event themed, “Pathways to Zero Hunger” in New York, USA, alongside Togolese President, Faure Gnassingbe, President Mahama visited the New York traffic Management Center and was taken through by John Tipaldo, Director of Systems Engineering, New York City Department of Transportation.
