New Delhi: Delhi's traffic infrastructure is all set for a makeover for Commonwealth Games 2010, with "intelligent" video cameras at major intersections to help manage traffic.

"Through this system we will be able to communicate through live video images from traffic intersections to the control centre, which will give us a clear picture of situation and we will be able to tackle the situation easily," said a senior traffic police official.

The system will also have an inbuilt enforcement system against violations of red signals, lane driving and speed limits.

"Installation of variable message signs to inform road users about the traffic situation is also a part of the intelligent system," added the officer.

To implement this scheme, the Planning Commission has approved an outlay of 2 billion for the period of 2007-12 and 320 million for 2008-09.
