Traffic Impact Study and Signal Design at Suchitra Junction, Qutubullapur, Rangareddy, Telangana, India
Abstract: TIS (Traffic impact study) is generally required to support the transportation aspects of a proposed development that has the potential to generate significant amounts of pedestrians, bicycle trips, transit users and vehicular traffic. Traffic rules and regulations are devised to assure the smooth flowing of motor vehicles in the road. Moreover, traffic rules and regulation are not only for the driver of the vehicles but at the same times these rules are meant for the pedestrians, cyclist, motor-cyclist and other road users. Traffic signal is an aid to control traffic at intersections where other control measures fail. The signals operate by providing right of way to a certain set of movements in a cyclic order. The necessary data should be collected by means of traffic engineering studies. Minimum vehicular volume, interruption of continuous traffic, minimum pedestrian volume, accident experience, combination of above warrants. Combination of warrants when no single warrant is satisfied but indicating two or more warrants of above are satisfied to the extent of 80 percent or more of the stated volume. Traffic control signal shall be installed at Suchitra junction for the following signal warrants meeting. As the average traffic flow for 8 hours on both approaches exceeding 800 vehicles. Interruption of continuous traffic flow on the major street exceeding 1000 vehicles per hour. As 150 or more pedestrians per hour crossing a major street with over 600 vehicles per hour on both approaches.
