One of the primary objective of Pune Smart City mission is to develop Smart traffic management solutions which provide greater information to the authorities to proactively manage the ongoing traffic situation and allow citizens to make informed travel choices. With Smart traffic management solutions, the overall burden of traffic on the roads will reduce and it will result in greater journey time reliability for the citizens and local businesses improving overall productivity levels.
