An analytical study among vehicular Travel Time, Vehicle Flow & Delay from Moving Car Observer Method in field are presented in this paper. Chowk to Delhi Gate C.B.D. area of Surat city was surveyed for traffic data collection using test vehicle. Moving Car Observer data were collected from six test vehicle runs for both Morning & Evening peak hours and two test vehicle runs for Afternoon peak hours for three days (i.e. Monday, Saturday ,Sunday).Vehicle counts with and against the test vehicle, Vehicle overtaken and overtaking the test vehicle, Travel time and delay time were recorded. Parameters like Flow, Average journey speed, Average running speed were calculated from the collected data. Then Graphical representation of Average journey time, Average running time & Average delay time for each session each day were presented along with the traffic flow comparison for all three days.

Keywords: Moving Car Observer Method, Travel Time, Delay, Vehicle Flow, Test Vehicle.

Article published in International Journal of Current Engineering and Technology, Vol.6, No.3 (June-2016)
