It is fully equipped to measure traffic, monitor violations, provide information, control smart traffic lights and peripheral equipment installed at two pilot intersections.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Director of the Hanoi Department of Transport Nguyen Phi Thuong stressed that the system will serve as a foundation for the completion of the capital's intelligent transport project in the near future.

The Hanoi intelligent transport system (ITS) roadmap will consist of three phases: Phase 1 (2024-2026) will see the installation and operation of the Traffic Operations Center; Phase 2 (2027-2029) the expansion of the Traffic Operations Center; and Phase 3 (2030) will focus on sustainable development.

The deployment of ITS is part of the digital transformation plan adopted by the Hanoi Party Committee, which aims to make the capital a smart and modern city connected to a global network of smart metropolises by 2030./.
