Delay Survey, Economic Evaluation, Passenger Car Unit (PCU), Railway Crossing, Responder Survey, Traffic Volume Count (TVC)
Flyover construction on kalol railway crossing will be economically viable or not was determined. All over the world railway crossing are made for the efficient movement of man and vehicles with safety as a main consideration. Kalol city in Gandhinagar district of Gujarat (India) has only one existing manned railway crossing.

This rail road crossing is located in the highly populated area of kalol which is next to the kalol railway station on one side and sintex industry (plastic industry) on other side. This congested area leads to traffic problems at railway crossing. Study aims to select the best alternative among the other alternative to avoid the congestion on railroad intersection, by the means of traffic volume count survey, responder survey, delay survey and economic analysis. This survey helps to determine the future steps to be undertaken to solve transportation problems at kalol. By the means of different survey and adopting standard codes economic analysis is done for the kalol railway crossing. Study suggest best alternatives among other alternatives to improve transportation facility for kalol railway crossing.
