Sindh Transportation Master Planning Study (Priority Road Sections)
Traffic Survey, Capacity Analysis
The project aims to establish a baseline for corrective measures required for roads in the interior Sindh by gathering traffic data, particularly origin and destination and midblock counts, at different identified roads connecting small towns. This data is then be used for analyzing service level of each road and thus, pinpointing problem areas and the required preventive actions and improvements. The origin and destination survey has been formulated to find out the traffic volume generating from a specific zone towards the zone where it terminates. The traffic volume accounts for the types and number of trips, the movement of passengers and cargo and types of vehicles. The mid-block survey has been designed so as to determine the total traffic volume between two towns in both directions. Here, the traffic volume refers to the total number of trips, movement of passengers/cargo and types of vehicles.
