Unsignalized intersections are an integral part of traffic network. These are generally found in various traffic conditions. Unsignalized intersections are generally a cause for accidents at intersections especially in a country like India where the rules are not strictly followed. Capacity of the intersection is generally required to calculate and assure a smooth flow of traffic without any conflicts. The site chosen for this project was Congress nagar T point. The capacity at the intersection was calculated using the software HCS 2000. After the estimation of the capacity at an uncontrolled intersection a signal was manually designed by using Webster method and the capacity at that controlled intersection was estimated manually. The results showed slight variations in terms of the capacity and LOS. The capacity at signalized intersections was found to be better than unsignalised intersection. The results illustrates that the capacity increased up to 23% at signalized intersection.
