Level of Service on different segment Road : A Review

Authors(2) :-Adarsh Patel , Khushbu Bhatt

Traffic congestion is a problem of the daily life of people. In the wake of the development of smart cities in India, the traffic congestion is a major bottleneck as it causes delays and immense loss of man-hours. The congestion leads to air pollution and decreasing level of service. There are a lot of measures taken all over the world but due to an exponential increase in the traffic, the Indian roads are experiencing poor level of service. Due to rapid industrialization, urbanization and commercialization there is a huge need to improve the level of service. This review paper is intended to highlight various studies reported with regards to measurement of the level of service and congestion and gives a suitable measure.
