Posted on


MIRI, July 4: The Transport Ministry intends to install smart traffic lights in several areas that have been identified as experiencing critical traffic congestion.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Lee Kim Shin said the installation of traffic lights could reduce traffic congestion by 30 percent.

“These smart traffic lights are able to adjust the time for the car to run. Sometimes, the traffic lights will give a longer time for the car to run if traffic congestion is seen to be reduced “he said when met by reporters at the Taman Tunku intersection today.

“Compared to conventional traffic lights, it cannot be adjusted according to time,” he added.

At the same time, his ministry also received complaints regarding traffic congestion along the Pan-Borneo construction project in Miri.

The Public Works Department (JKR) is trying its best to solve this problem as soon as possible so that traffic can run smoothly.

JKR took the initiative to add 3 more routes at the Taman Tunku intersection.

“The PWD needs to carry out work to widen the road in this area so the construction of 3 entrances can be done at the Taman Tunku intersection”.

“They have built 3 routes in the Taman Tunku area up to the airport junction. The route to Taman Tunku has 3 routes where traffic congestion often occurs and construction work by the PWD is also in process, ”he said. -TVS
