Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) commissioner M Dana Kishore and police commissioners of Hyderabad, Cyberabad and Rachakonda said they will coordinate directly with traffic police and monitor contractors to ensure the signals work. A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of GHMC officials at their head office on Thursday.

The state government has allocated Rs.200 crore to improve traffic management in the city after a series of complaints from the public regarding dysfunctional traffic signals. As per GHMC records, 88 of 221 traffic signals in Hyderabad were almost defunct.

"Works pertaining to traffic management will be taken up in view of the development of the city. The works will begin only after a study by LEA Associates, a traffic engineering and transportation planning firm,” Dana Kishore said. Twin towers with command control rooms would be set up to monitor the traffic, consolidate data from different departments and propose solutions to solve traffic problems.
