Passenger Car Unit (PCU) is the metric used to convert heterogenic traffic in to homogenous traffic. Presently In India traffic condition is heterogeneous (figure-1,2), it is necessary to convert heterogeneous traffic to homogenous traffic while designing any signalized intersection. PCU Value is dynamic in Nature. PCU value is depends upon current road traffic condition. In India PCU value is based on value given in IRC SP 41 (Table-I). In this paper PCU value for urban intersection is estimated.
