Abstract:

The number of trips on the urban road networks has been increased in cities of India. Extra widening of roads and provision of new roads became the pattern to provide additional capacity to deal with increment of traffic particularly in developing cities like India. Today, even with the addition of new roads / flyovers or widening of roads has an addition of more traffic congestion within a short interval of time, observed in recent times in the road network in Ahmedabad urban area due to high growth of vehicle ownership. Traffic congestion is a road condition given by volume beyond the capacity, low operating speeds, higher travel times and environment degradation due to pollutants of exhaust gases coupled with increased queuing of vehicles. Mostly the working hour times, the traffic volume remains very higher above its capacity, mostly at morning peak between 10:00 to 11:30 as well as in evening peak between 5:30 to 7:00. In this paper, to determine the congestion pricing for a particular selected road in walled city of Ahmedabad, the method adopted for the determination of optimum pricing is related to the Point of pricing where the external costs are met by the revenue generated by the pricing level pricing for two-wheeler, three wheeler and four wheeler motorized vehicles has been considered.
