The Municipality of Abu Dhabi City has completed the upgrade of the electronic traffic data capture system aimed at supporting traffic operations and management in the region.

The project aims to capture and monitor traffic accident data electronically to identify the causes of accidents.

The e-system will use sophisticated surveillance and control cameras to establish a comprehensive database to identify frequent traffic accident spots in the first phase.

The project is being carried out by the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City in cooperation with the Traffic & Patrols Department and the Abu Dhabi Police.

A consultant is currently preparing a study about the region’s roads, bridges and tunnels to offer options for improving safety for all road users including pedestrians and motorists.
