Authors(3) :-Saurabh P Patel, Parth Pande, Jaimin Solanki

A significant effort has been made in order to study the Traffic Volume of Ashram road, Ahmedabad. Ahmedabad itself attracts a lot of vehicular population. Ahmedabad itself becomes a major traffic generator in a way. Ahmedabad is large and contains places to work, learn, socialize and live each with its own trip purpose. In recent years, usage of automobiles on road has increased considerably. In addition to going to class, students also are likely to use vehicles for employment, recreation, shopping and social activities. The objective of the study is to analyze the prevailing traffic conditions on the Ashram road. Traffic Volume study is carried out on Ashram road at Vadaj to Usmanpura and existing level of service is calculated. Due to mixed nature of traffic it gets difficult to accommodate all the kinds of traffic on these roads. The basic problem arises during the peak hours of the day when the traffic volume is highest on the road. The data was analyzed for the peak hour of traffic.
