China to launch internet-based traffic management and information system

With the world’s largest road network and a population of approximately 1.4 billion, China has major problems with traffic congestion. Having surpassed the USA in terms of annual vehicle sales, which are expected to reach 40 million a year by 2020, there are now 300 million drivers and 270 million vehicles on the country’s roads. With this in mind, the Chinese Ministry of Public Security has announced that it will launch a nationwide online traffic management and information system that will offer more than 130 services, with the system expected to be available in 2016.

By logging onto the internet-based traffic system, users will be able to check traffic and road information, as well as accessing traffic accident, congestion and weather reports. All the new services are aimed at allowing users to better plan their travel arrangements in advance.

The establishment of the online traffic management system is in accordance with the ‘Internet Plus’ strategies advocated by Premier Li Keqiang in March this year, with an aim to boost the development of China’s internet industry. The Ministry says that users will also be able to apply for driver's licenses and vehicle inspections, pay fines for traffic violations, update their personal information, and check traffic news and regulations via the online platform.

The online traffic system will also be connected with banks, automobile sales and service shops, driving schools and hospitals for additional services. Registrations to access the system will be completed online or at local public security bureaus. Users will be able to access the system online at the Chinese Government’s official internet site or through its official smartphone application. Users will also be able to log on the system by SMS text message or calling a nationwide telephone helpline. Trial versions of the system have been offered in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, Fujian Province in the southeast, and Guangdong Province in the south.
