Paper Title
Time Dependent Variation Of Level Of Service On Madhya Marg, Chandigarh
  Lalit Dhalk,  Pardeep Kumar Gupta

Chandigarh is an urban city with the highest per capita vehicle density in India. Owing to boastfully population, the congestion is growing at zip, zap, zoom speed as thousands of heterogeneous vehicles are added to the roads in Chandigarh. The Level of Service (LOS) is not passable for heterogeneous traffic flow with different operational features. Declining LOS is essentially a severe problem. To evaluate the Time dependent variations of Level Of Service on Madhya Marg is evaluated using Highway Capacity Manual. This has been accomplished by evaluating the level of service of individual hour starting from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm to include all the peaks. The data was collected on 6 different working Mondays. The data was collected using Automatic Traffic Counter-cum-classifier. The data collected during the traffic survey includes traffic volume, cycle length , green time, free flow speed. The variation of LOS was computed by Average Travel Speed and represented graphically. For Peak hours at Madhya Marg, LOS has been found out to be ‘intermediary of D or E’ which indicates that flows are at a level where small hike may cause a considerable reduction in the performance or ‘Level of service’ of the street. Moreover, drivers are restricted in freedom to select speed or change lane. Mid-Block counts indicated that at present Volume/ Capacity (V/c) ratio were less than one for all sectors but as traffic is increasing, they may approach their saturation point soon. In the end various recommendations are made to improve the existing Level of Service .

Keywords- Level of Service, Volume/ Capacity, Average Travel Speed, traffic volume, cycle length , green time, free flow speed
