Traffic Studies in Planning of Bridges

  • Traffic studies need to be carried out to ascertain the amount of traffic that will utilize the New or Widened Bridge 
  • This is needed to determine Economic Feasibility of the Bridge  
  • For this Services of a Transportation Planner and or Traffic Engineer are required  
  • Such Studies are done with help of Traffic Software such as Trans CAD, EMME2 etc. 
  • Traffic Studies should provide following information
    • Traffic on Bridge immediately after opening
    • Amount of traffic at various times during life of the Bridge 
    • Traffic Mix i.e. number of motorcars, buses, heavy trucks and other vehicles 
    • Effect of the new link on existing road network 
    • Predominant Origin and Destination of traffic that will use the Bridge 
    • Strategic importance of the new/improved Bridge
