Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has rolled out a new advanced Traffic Signalisation System (TSS) to improve traffic condition and safety.

The system will be complemented by a new surveillance network of 25 fiber-optic high definition pan-tilt-zoom CCTV cameras. These cameras add to the existing 100 CCTV cameras installed last year at strategic spots in Metro Manila, the most populous and densest region in The Philippines with 11.8 million.

MMDA has set up a its first Command and Control Centre in Makati City, from which staff can monitor real-time traffic video feeds from the CCTV network and remotely control traffic lights around Metro Manila.

In the first phase, MMDA’s staff will use the software system to manage 85 key road intersections and 25 traffic control and video surveillance areas.

This number will grow to 500 intersections in future, with planned enhancement to automate and optimise traffic management, said MMDA’s Chairman Francis Tolentino.

A traffic management system better coordinates lights to enhance road users’ experience, reduce travel time, improve safety and reduce traffic congestions.

The system consolidates and analyses real-time traffic data to allow MMDA make more informed decisions with speed.
