5. Feasibility Study for the Construction of Elevated Road on New Rohtak Road from Rani Jhansi Road to Zakhira Flyover in Delhi
Date of Start:
October 2005
(i) Central Road Research Institute, New Delhi (C,I)
(ii) Municipal Corporation Delhi (S)


Scope and Objectives

The main objective of the study is to analyze the traffic characteristics of the corridor with a view to arriving at a feasible solution to minimize the present traffic problems.

The methodology followed is:
Studying the client requirements and identification of problem associated with traffic on the proposed corridor
On the selected location the following surveys will be carried conducted
(i) Hourly classified traffic counts with turning movements
(ii) Speed and delay studies
(iii) Fuel consumption of different types of vehicles during idling will be used to estimate the fuel losses
Inventory of the signalized intersections (with and without flyovers) shall be made, where traffic volume and the vehicular delays are high
Estimation of total fuel consumption loss due to delay in travel time
Detailed economic feasibility study and preparation of conceptual plans along the corridor.
Significant / Utilization Potential
Quantification of fuel loss at signalized intersection shall be done along with remedial measures to reduce the quantum of loss. Conceptual plans for a flyover which will provide maximum economic benefits to the society.
