A roundabout is an alternative form of traffic control intersection. Roundabouts are suitable for several intersections including positions experiencing long traffic delays, large number of collision and approaches with quite balanced traffic flows. Roundabouts have the capability to resolve different traffic flow problems. But heterogeneous form of traffic found in Indian roadways especially in urban areas. Under heterogeneous traffic state all category of vehicles such as heavy motorized vehicles, light motorized vehicles and non-motorized vehicles share the road width. Due to speedy urbanization economy gets increased which results in high volume of traffic at peak hours observed in many cities of India. In real time condition the same situational parameters are faced by the medical square intersection in Nagpur which has six legs. The intersection is basically operated on the principle of the roundabout. A huge sum of traffic is count up from these legs in peak hours. The situational real time model is produced in VISSIM with help of data collection that is done by video recording method. An effort is made to give the best possible resolution for this traffic intersection by examining the two models for different traffic situations with the real time data. The idea of metering signals is point out in this work. Lastly by comparing the results of two various models for various traffic parameters the path possible traffic control measure is suggested.
