Traffic Congestion “Gap” Analysis in India

Tsutomu Tsuboi, Tomoaki Mizutani

Abstract

This study is more than one-month traffic flow observation in India and introduces new traffic congestion “Gap” from the analysis of real traffic flow analysis in India. Traffic congestion becomes serious problem especially in developing countries such as India. In general, it is quite challenging to collect traffic data and understand traffic congestion problem from its data analysis. In this study, it is the first time to show long term traffic monitoring at one of major junction in Ahmedabad city of Gujarat state India. IAs for traffic congestion analysis, the following challenges are executed with a collaboration from local city government. Step 1 is to select location for 8 months observation by traffic monitoring camera in the city. Step 2 is to analyse traffic flow at the junction from each direction traffic flow. Step 3 is to evaluate traffic congestion with traffic flow parameter from traffic flow theory. Step 4 is to analyse geographical mapping by GIS tool. Based on these steps, it reached to unique traffic congestion mechanism in the junction, which it is named congestion “Gap” and large traffic volume is not always a case of traffic congestion. From this result, there is a possibility to improve traffic management when more detail observation at certain time of traffic congestion happing and environmental condition such as traffic signal control, road infrastructure structure and so on.
