Abstract

In the growing traffic of metropolitan cities, traffic congestion has become the main problem. The problem is even worse at an intersection due to improper signal timings which in turn causes delay, an increase in vehicle operating cost and also pollution is the main concern of recent times. Delays have attributed to various socio-economic and environmental problems. Delays in traffic are caused due to numerous factors like scarcity in road width, driver and pedestrian characteristics, vehicle composition, lack of road infrastructure, road condition and geometry, traffic signal management and many more. Among the above factors contributing to delays in improper signal timing or its management forms the main theft for the delays at a signalized intersection. The main parameter while evaluating a signalized intersection is the delay caused due to the signals. Hence in order to encounter these problems, the traffic signal synchronization is the technique in which vehicle starting at one end of the street and travelling at specific speed can go to another end without stopping for a red light at any intersection. In the study the existing traffic at each junction along the Jhansi square, Dharampeth square, Bajaj Nagar square and Laxmi square. In which Jhansi square is one of the most important roads having heavy traffic is studied and signal is designed, thereafter the traffic signals are synchronized and benefits are estimated
