Posted February 02, 2018 08:37:20 The Canadian government is set to install the new automated traffic cameras on Walmart Military Highways in eastern Canada, according to a report in The Canadian Press.
The Canadian Armed Forces and the RCMP are also expected to use the cameras to enforce traffic control.
The project, expected to cost $1.8 billion, will see more than 3,000 traffic cameras installed at the highways.
“The cameras are set to be installed in a few months,” a government spokesperson said in a statement.
“These cameras will be installed at Walmart Military and Highway 407 and will provide a valuable public safety resource for Canadians, who will benefit from the enhanced safety of their vehicles, and the increased efficiency of their roadways.”
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) said in March 2018 that the cameras will help “increase traffic visibility and reduce accidents.”
The government has also said the cameras are not part of a nationwide “Smart Traffic” program.
Walmart announced in November 2018 that it was opening a new store in Winnipeg, where it already operates three other stores.
It said the new store will offer “fast, convenient and convenient shopping experiences” at a “low cost.”
In addition to the traffic cameras, the company is also developing a “smart” security system that will monitor every vehicle on its highways.
The plan is to deploy the system to more than 20,000 Walmart stores across Canada in 2021.
Walmart said it plans to sell the system in the US and Europe in the 2020s.
