Abstract

South-East zone is the second most populous zone in Surat city with a population of 7.48 Lakh in the year 2017. The city with growing population faces high motorization rate that needs to be addressed. The rapid increase of motorization rates on the urban road mainly generates a lot of traffic problems like traffic delay, traffic accident, congestion, cost, environmental pollution and many more. An Intersection is a complex area which is designated for vehicles to change the direction to reach their desired location. And not only the vehicles but pedestrians also demand some space for crossing the road. This paper examined the traffic volume and signal phases characteristics at the selected intersection of South-East zone of the Surat city. In addition to this, the directional movement and conflict point analysis were also identified. For analyzing the problem of traffic congestion, classified volume counts, pedestrian counts were calculated for three days that are Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Data were collected through direct field survey and from the video of private shops on intersection characteristics, traffic volume, signal phase cycle. Furthermore, the un-authorized parking problems and inadequate traffic police were also found out at the selected intersection in the South-East zone of the Surat city. This paper found out the fact on the reduction of congestion through improving existing roadway conditions because the intersection is an integral part of the road section which can impart active involvement in reducing traffic delay problems. In this paper, the research findings were shown for the two selected intersection that is Model Town Intersection and Dindoli main intersection of the South East zone of the city.
