Abstract
The study conducted at the AUST-Flyover to Mangamuru Junction in Ongole city underscores the critical role of traffic engineering in ensuring safe and efficient movement of people and goods on roadways. By focusing on traffic volume analysis, the research illuminates key traffic characteristics essential for effective urban planning and traffic management. The increase in pedestrian and vehicle volumes over the past decade underscores the urgency for comprehensive solutions to address congestion and enhance mobility. Through manual traffic flow surveys and calculations of Passenger Car Units (PCU’s), the study provides valuable insights into current traffic patterns and dynamics. These findings not only facilitate a better understanding of the present traffic situation but also serve as a basis for implementing traffic control measures and suggesting remedial actions to improve safety and efficiency at the junction. Recommendations such as road widening, lane expansions, and improvements in public transport infrastructure emerge as potential solutions based on the outcomes of the study. By leveraging these insights, authorities can enhance traffic management strategies and pave the way for sustainable urban development, ensuring that the city's road infrastructure can adequately meet the evolving needs of its inhabitants while prioritizing safety and efficiency.
