Abstract

Agra is dense populated city situated in Uttar Pradesh, India. The Tajmahal is one of the seven wonder of world also situated in Agra which is getting more popular day by day. Agra is the biggest national and international tourist place in India.  Agra is old city covered by narrow roads and traffic situation has become worse than worst because of lots of tourist vehicles. Nowadays, Agra is facing congested roads and large queues of vehicle at intersection. As we've observed the Agra town, there is a lot of inconvenience for traffic flow in Agra city. The lack of traffic signal conspicuity is continually mentioned as a contributing factor through motorists which are concerned in accidents at junction. Therefore, we need to design a traffic signal for clean go with the flow of visitors. The advantage of traffic signal includes an orderly movement of traffic, an increase capacity of intersection and requires only simple analytic design. In this project we have study traffic at Ghatiya Azam khan intersection. We choose this location because there are lots of school and different types of shops at this place and there is great rush all over the intersection. After studying the records we conclude that there is a need of traffic signal at that intersection. In order that we designed the traffic signal with two phase system within IRC suggestions. Signal timing includes determining how an awful lot green time the traffic lighting fixtures shall provide at an intersection approach. Traffic volume studies are carried out to determine the variety, movements, and groups of drive motors at a given area. This information can assist to discover critical flow time durations, determine the impact of huge vehicles or pedestrians on vehicle traffic flow, or document traffic volume traits. The length of the sampling duration depends in the type of be counted being taken and the intended use of the information recorded. Webster method is a rational technique for signal design. The design is easy and is completely grounded on expression laid down by Webster, on this system, the entire cycle of the signal is decided which forms a total least detention being at signal.
