The vehicular population in Surat is around 24,21,043 (2015) so it is very essential to manage its movements and ill effects like as air and noise pollution, traffic congestion, time loss, and so on. Rajmarg (Road connecting Chowk Bazar to Delhi Gate) has 2.4 km long stretch of Surat, an oldest and most important link, is passes through the C.B.D. area. For addressing the traffic congestion, classified volume count survey of 3 days i.e. Saturday, Sunday and Monday (by Video Graphic method), travel time and delay survey (by Moving Observer Method), Origin – Destination Survey (by License plate matching method) for 3 days i.e. Saturday, Sunday, Monday from (Date 27/02/2016 to 29/02/2016), and for speed-flow-density relationship Spot speed study at Chowk Bazar, Bhagal and Delhi Gate has been performed and analyzed. From the calculated data, graph of flow v.s. density, speed v.s. density and speed v.s. flow relationship has been developed with the R2 value of each relationship. Analysis proved that the travel time taken by vehicle to reach the destination is usually higher than the travel time in free flow condition. From all analyzed data, alternate remedial measures are explored. Based on those alternative remedial measures best alternative is chosen and validated in the VISSIM simulation Model and design in AutoCAD for better clarification of issue.

Keywords: Travel Time, Congestion, Heterogeneous, Traffic, VISSIM, Simulation Model, Surat, Rajmarg.
