Abstract
Transportation infrastructure plays a lead role in economic growth and development of country. The road transport is the ancient and perhaps the most widely adopted mode of transport of mankind. The road transport witnessed a tremendous growth rate after independence of our country. Pavements are the key elements of infrastructure of the country, whose functions are to promote transport activities, economic activities and to improve the standard of living. Flexible pavements undergo the functional deterioration as well as the structural deterioration simultaneously due to the combine effects of climate, environment and traffic loads. The functional deterioration is also indicated by the changes in surface condition of the pavement in the form of distress in the quality, which can be measured by simple methods it is also possible to restore the surface to original condition of the pavement by providing a profile correction course and a re- surfacing the layer and Widening and strengthening of the existing pavement. The high growth number of vehicles will increase the movement and the use of transport infrastructure. Road widening is one of the actions that can be used as the solution. However, this solution also increases the traffic performance. This is because people will switch to use the newly widened and resurface road because they believe this road can accommodate the existing and future traffic volume. For finding out the effects of road widening and strengthening towards the increasing of traffic performance and road capacity, it is necessary to conduct a research and an analysis. The road network of any city is its lifeline and the evaluation of their performance is very necessary for future traffic planning, design, operation and` Maintenance, etc. Traffic flow in most cities of India is a mixed traffic characteristic and also the traffic congestion is the common problem in most major cities in India.
