efficiency of transport depends on network of roads
and transport system. Transport plays an important
role in development of various important sectors
of economy like industries, agriculture, commerce,
trade, etc. Transport system links the producers

road transport system, in general, consists of
animal driven vehicles as well as the power driven
vehicles like 2 Wheeler & 3 wheeler Auto, LMV, LCV, 2 Axle Vehicle, 3 Axle Vehicle, Multi Axle Vehicle,
Tractor with loaded trolley, Tractor without loaded

The objective of the Traffic Census is to assess the volume of traffic
on various road sections in the State. It also simultaneously provides
useful data regarding composition of traffic intensity by type of roads
in different areas of the State. The estimates of traffic intensity at
various road sections provides a measure of adequacy of road carriage
way width on those sections and also helps to identify the road sections
need to be widen.
We at ULTIMATE ITPL with our associates developed V-Track - Traffic Census
System - Vehicle Counting & Identification
Analysis Reporting Software. The application is useful for – i) Digital
Traffic Count, ii) Existing Traffic Count & origin-destination survey, ii) Traffic data collection for regional planning,
iv) Analysis & forecasting.
Traffic studies are the initial step of any road project whether it is
improvement over exiting road or construction of entirely new road. These
studies are the base for deciding many component such as roadway width,
layer composition etc. in any highway design and to assess potential
toll revenues from toll able traffic.
