The project will save operational cost of the vehicles as well as time and fuel. Usually it takes 4 hours to reach Kandhkot and its nearby areas from Ghotki and vice versa. This is a bid economic loss which will be well mitigated by construction of a link road and bridge over River Indus to connect two cities of economic importance of Sindh.
The Consultant has carried out traffic studies and modelling exercise for the aforementioned project to develop and Supply and Demand Model for Kandhkot Ghotki Link Road and Bridge, the activities include collection of traffic data, particularly midblock volume counts surveys, intersection volume counts surveys, willingness-to-pay surveys, road user interview survey, fare structure surveys and origin and destination surveys at various locations. After collection of all the data a comprehensive transportation model was developed using the transportation modelling software to extract all the demand on the roads being subject to improvement as a part of this Project. This demand was further utilized by think transportation traffic engineering team to determine the pre and post construction level of services and various other traffic engineering parameters.
