Analysis on Different Roads of Meerut City
Keywords:Traffic flow, Traffic composition, Traffic congestion, Passenger car unit, Traffic volume, Traffic density
Traffic engineering is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the safe and efficient flow of people and products on highways. The safe and timely movement of people and products is based on traffic flow, which is inextricably linked to traffic characteristics. Volume, speed, and density are the three primary factors of a traffic flow. The present road infrastructure cannot meet the city's future demands in the absence of comprehensive city planning and traffic management. Because of changes in the economy of middle-class households, pedestrian and car traffic have grown dramatically in the recent decade. The current work investigates traffic characteristics in the city of Meerut at a single high-traffic intersection. The emphasis in this work was on traffic volume, and the research was carried out using primary traffic flow surveys from in Meerut city. Manual approaches are used to study traffic flow. A traffic survey is carried out to have a better knowledge of the current state of traffic flow at the intersection. Our renowned course co-coordinators of the course CE452 presented a calculation of Passenger Car Units (PCUs) for various vehicle kinds. An attempt had been made to study traffic patterns throughout various time periods using data collecting. The features of the traffic flow also influence traffic control at that intersection. As a consequence, the findings of this study are useful in regulating traffic at the intersection and in recommending some corrective steps to improve traffic safety in the region. Based on the results of the work, corrective actions such as enlarging the road, altering it from four to six lanes, or providing additional public transportation may be proposed.
