Congestion resolved from the experience of world cities

Traffic congestion not only causes loss of economy and time, but also affects air pollution and global climate change. Therefore, the development and introduction of a new generation of traffic infrastructure to solve the problem of traffic congestion continues worldwide.

Singapore has been focusing on transportation issues for a long time. The authorities believe that people and money gather in clean, safe and congested cities. One of the main measures implemented by the transport policy is the permit granting procedure adopted in 1975. According to the rules, a toll is collected from cars and motorcycles traveling to a district. The second measure is the vehicle regulation system adopted in 1990. Car buyers must obtain a certificate of ownership, and the number of certificates is limited. In this way, the number of cars can be kept. Also, private transport fees and charges in Singapore are very high.

Indonesia – Jakarta’s transportation department has adopted a strict policy of puncturing the tires of cars and motorcycles parked in the wrong place causing traffic jams. In addition, a fine of about 190 US dollars is imposed. In addition, there was even a case of beating and robbing an employee who was officially licensed to puncture tires and was carrying the tool. But as a result of all this, the number of violations has decreased significantly.

 Los Angeles – In order to reduce traffic congestion, the authorities of Los Angeles have made all the traffic lights in the city smart. The resulting automated traffic monitoring system is a model for other cities. Sensor devices are installed at every intersection that transmit traffic conditions every second by cable. Control center computers located underground in central Los Angeles analyze all incoming data without human intervention and send solutions back to the traffic lights. If a bus is traveling on the road, traffic lights, not traffic police, make it possible for it to pass smoothly.

Tokyo- For Japanese people, they only use their cars on weekends, and those who go to work or school prefer public transport. So, during the start or peak hours of school, there is no chaos like in India. People with cars use specific lanes. In addition, parking and public transportation are very well arranged.

BEIJING – China is the most populous country in the world, so traffic jams are inevitable. Since June 2016, five Chinese cities have signed a contract with TEB Technology Development, which invented the Transit Elevated Bus. The bus glides over traffic lanes and can accommodate more than 1,200 passengers. The best part is that it runs on solar energy and costs one-sixteenth of the cost of building a subway.

Stockholm – On weekdays from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm, all passenger cars on city center roads pay a toll. However, public transport, taxis, fire, ambulances, and electric cars have been arranged in such a way that this restriction does not apply. In the first two years of the restriction, congestion was reduced by 25 percent in busy areas. This means that one million cars a day no longer travel on toll roads. In one day, the income from road tax was 300 thousand US dollars. This revenue has been used to improve other roads.

Hong Kong – Minibus developed. Small buses with a maximum capacity of 16 people are organized so that they go directly in one direction without stopping to go to parts of the city that cannot be reached by large public transport. As soon as the small bus was launched, the demand was very high, and it provided customers with the opportunity to travel directly to selected destinations and to travel more comfortably. This solution was very helpful in regulating private taxis and other vehicles.
