As we know the world is facing pollution problem. Cities are rapidly becoming the engines of economic growth all over the developing world. In India, though only about 30% of the national population resides in urban areas, they generate over 60% of the GDP. It is also expected that cities will propel the future growth of the country. It is, therefore, essential to ensure that these urban centers are well equipped in terms of infrastructure, if India is to continue on its growth trajectory. The concept of Comprehensive traffic and transportation study (CTTS) is to have immediate, short-term, medium-term and long-term vision for desirable accessibility pattern for people and goods in the urban agglomeration. It focuses on the traffic and transportation plan to address urban transport problems and promote better use of existing infrastructure (i.e., improvement of public transport, Pedestrian and NMT facilities). This as such leads to the integration of transport development and is essential to building smart cities. Immediate measures are aimed at improving the safety and accessibility of pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users, area level traffic circulation plans and measures like implementing traffic signals.
