Abstract

The knowledge of traffic volume is an important basic input required for planning, analysis and operation of roadway systems. A significant effort has been made in order to study the Traffic Volume of Dadabari Chauraha. For better understanding of the present status of traffic flow at the junction, traffic survey is conducted. The safe and time efficient movement of the people and goods is dependent on Traffic flow, which is directly connected to the traffic characteristics. In Traffic Flow we have to consider generally three parameters, Volume, Speed, and Capacity. While as a traffic volume may be defined as the number of vehicles passing a given section of road or traffic lane per unit time will be inappropriate when several types of vehicles with widely varying static and dynamic characteristics are comprised in the traffic. Due to mixed nature of traffic it gets difficult to accommodate all the kinds of traffic on these roads. The basic problem arises during the peak hours of the day when the traffic volume is highest on the road. The interaction between moving vehicles under such heterogeneous traffic condition is highly complex. The problem of measuring volume of such kind of traffic has been addressed by converting the different types of vehicles into equivalent passenger cars and expressing the volume in terms of Passenger Car Unit (PCU) per hour. Calculation of Passenger Car Units (PCU’s) for different vehicle types had been made. For a wide range of traffic volume and roadway conditions indicate that the PCU value of a vehicle significantly changes with change in traffic volume and width of roadway. some of the remedial measures to improve the traffic safety in the region such as widening the road, changing 4-lane to 6-lane or by providing more public transport can be recommended based on the outcomes of the work.

Keywords: Traffic Control, PCU, Heterogeneous Traffic, Traffic Volume
