مـدري منيـن أجونـه وفـرگوا هالأديـن ؟
ياهــو الچـان يعــرف طائفـــة جـــاره؟
ولــو يــوگـع عمــر يـركض حسين ويآه
ونلتــم بالعـصـــر ونـروحــلـــه لـــدآره
ولـو يعثـر [علــي] يركض عليه [عثمان]
يگـلـه اســـم اللــــــه وينـكـــت غبـــآره
مــآظنــينـــه مــره بهــل وكــت يـنــدآر
وتجينــه وجــوه صفــره وكلهــآ غـدآره
مــآبيهــم رحــم غــآيــتهـــم يــدمـــرون
بيتـــي الــي بنــيتــــه حجــآره بحجـــآره
غـــآيتــهــم طـــوآئــف رآدوا ايســـوون
وأخــــوي البــالرمـــآدي ينسـه العمـآره

Smart traffic project aims to ease Baghdad jams
TRANSPORTATION | 2013-05-17
Traffic lights that operate by sensors rather than a fixed timing system are just one of the changes outlined in Amanat Baghdad's new "smart traffic" project to ease traffic jams in the capital.
Slated to be launched this summer, the project also includes a central electronic system to monitor traffic, in which cameras will be installed on main streets and linked to an integrated central unit for control and tracking.
A team of specialists will be in charge of tracking traffic based on the photo data they receive, and will then instruct traffic police to direct vehicles towards less-crowded streets, said Hakim Abdul Zahra, director of media and relations at the mayoralty.
The mayoralty's design and projects departments are researching the equipment and systems needed, conducting detailed surveys of streets to be monitored and discussing work mechanisms, he said.
During a recent consultative meeting, a number of local and foreign firms expressed interest in bidding on the contract to execute the project, he said.
The proposed electronic system would ease the work of mayoralty staff, Abdul Zahra said, by tracking garbage collection and compression vehicles, street cleaning vehicles, vehicles used to repair sewers and agricultural machinery.
It would also facilitate the movement of ambulance and police vehicles on main streets, enabling them to swiftly deal with any incident or emergency, he added.
CURBING THE TRAFFIC PROBLEM
Iraq's General Directorate of Traffic indicated it is ready to co-ordinate efforts with Amanat Baghdad to ensure success for the "smart traffic" project.
Directorate and mayoralty officials are working together on a joint committee to study the proposed work and submit recommendations, said Brig. Gen. Ammar Waleed of the directorate's media section.
"We recommended installing cameras to record traffic violations on major expressways, which would support efforts to lessen traffic accidents," he told Mawtani.
To overcome traffic problems and absorb increasing numbers of cars and people, there is a need for other strategic projects, he said, including the construction of elevated train lines and an underground metro system, and modernising the public transport network.
"The problem of traffic jams on the capital's streets still poses a serious hardship for citizens, despite efforts made by the mayoralty to ease the problem, including the construction of several overpass bridges," said Ihsan al-Awadi, a member of the parliamentary services committee.
"We hope the new project will help curb this problem," he said. "Amanat Baghdad should speed up its steps to start work on it and complete it as soon as possible."
