JMPD to monitor intersections with faulty robots
Mayor Herman Mashaba says this is an interim solution while the Roads Agency starts working on a new programme to replace old cables servicing traffic lights.
JOHANNESBURG - More than 600 metro police officers will be deployed to Johannesburg intersections where traffic lights are not working.
Mashaba says more than 600 Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department officers will be deployed to all major intersections where traffic lights are down from Monday to Friday to ease traffic congestion while a long term solution is underway.
“Dedicated to assisted while traffic lights are out.”
The JRA’s Darryll Thomas it will also employ more traffic signal technicians to ease the load.
“We were always low in that area. We’ve got more money now.”
The JRA says more than 50 traffic lights are out on average per day, which needs to be reduced significantly.
