First-Highway-Advisory-System-HAS.jpg
 A new highway advisory system (HAS), which provides real-time information and advice to drivers travelling on the country’s highways was launched on March 10, 2016 by Ministry of Road Transport & Highways. Started as a pilot project on the NH-8 Delhi-Jaipur Highway, HAS is a freeto- air information distribution system that can be accessed through radio. The real-time information collected by toll plazas, patrol vehicles, concessionaires and traffic officials is passed to the HAS control centre through mobile applications, telephones and CCTV. Upon receipt of all the information, the HAS centre processes the information and sends it to public broadcaster All India Radio (AIR). Information and alerts get broadcast over AIR’s Delhi, Alwar and Jaipur FM stations, which provide live traffic updates on the NH8. During the pilot project, 22 bulletins will be issued every day.
