    Abstract :

    - Movement in urban areas effectively affects both well-being and traffic situation. More the congested activity, greater the rate of auto-movement will have more regrettable impacts. The impacts can be decreased by movement diminishment, or by moving from autos and bicycles to alternate methods of transport with less negative effects. For this venture, the range for the study which I have taken is Phagwara, Jalandhar. The purpose of the study is to control traffic jams on roads due to increase in the number of vehicles and saving the time of the people at the intersections. Travel time data is vital segment of numerous smart transportation frameworks (ITS) applications. As of late, the quantity of vehicles in India has been expanded enormously, prompting extreme movement blockage and pollution in an urban range, generally within peak periods. If we mitigate the congestion, another things will also decrease like pollution will be less and reduction in accident rate due to less delay to the road users. An attractive system to manage such issues is to move more individuals from personal vehicles to open transport by giving better administration like solace and less travel time. In this circumstance, propelled open transportation frameworks (APTS) are a standout amongst the most essential ITS applications, which can completely add to the movement circumstance in India. But this is not possible in every city because India is developing country and weak economy. Our point was to work out the traveler auto unit PCU for various categories of vehicles under non-homogeneous movement conditions. From the study we perceived that traffic volume was increasing ominously with mixed traffic conditions on the roadway consisting of Six-Lane-Two-Way traffic. The relation between volume and speed represents a third and fourth degree curve.
