The Fiji Police Force today celebrated a milestone achievement with the launch of the first ever National Traffic Control Centre.
The new centre is situated at the Nabua Police Station.
It’s here that all information regarding traffic will be compiled and made available to all relevant stakeholders.
Director Traffic Mahesh Mishra says the new centre will see a 24 hour monitoring of roads across the country.
“We’re anticipating being more cohesive and more vigilant and transparent in terms of maintaining and updating our road users on accidents, monitoring our roads in terms of congestion, road fatalities and road accidents.”
Today’s launch has also been welcomed by the Land Transport Authority who will work closely with police in this new venture.
“This is a big achievement, something we’re putting together with the Fiji Police to enable us to manage and control traffic on the road. There’s a lot of issues regarding roads and this is a dream of the commissioner of police, putting us together, all the stakeholders, of how we can work together and get all our efforts together to make roads safer for us.”
The new National Traffic Control Centre is the brainchild of Police Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua.
