Sharjah Announces How It Will Reduce Traffic By 30%!

Farah Makhlouf

Sharjah’s Road and Transport Authority are always making changes to the roads to improve the congestion because let’s face it, it’s heavily congested. Sharjah has a lot of character, heritage and affordable options but it also has traffic!

In an effort to beat the traffic, SRTA just made an upgrade that’ll reduce the congestion by 30%

48 traffic lights in Sharjah are now equipped with top-of-the-line sensors and cameras

In addition to sensors and cameras that have been placed on traffic lights, they’re also equipped with algorithms that work together to gather and analyze traffic data in real time. This kind of technology will analyze the number of vehicles at a light, eliminate congestion at an intersection and determine the length of the green light. A 30% reduction in traffic is an exceptional milestone for the heavily populated Emirate and this is just a step in the right direction!
