Abstract

For scientific planning of the road system, it is needed to have a proper data base for existing traffic
parameters of the roads. In CBD areas all the commercial activities takes place and it attracts traffic due to growing
population, rapid urbanization, and increasing commercial and economic activities. High population generates heavy
vehicular traffic which leads to conflict and congestion. The area selected for study has a railway station, bus station,
municipal market police station, post office, major hospitals and major administration buildings. So traffic tends to be
high in the area and that may lead to congestion, delay, increase in travel time and increasing fuel consumption. The
speed-flow relationship has been obtained. Capacity and level of service has been worked out.
