Jam at Highways

Posted on Monday, October 15, 2012

"Transport is the basis of the Sustainable development of any country. Traffic jams hamper smooth transport."

With great improvements in the road infrastructure and highways in India, speed and time has become a big part of the bargain for everyone. While countries have an average speed limit of 100kmp, Indian highways are still keeping a speed limit of 50kmph. Though we have world class highways and trucks on the road, we are still facing problems of speed, time and distance when it comes to commuting on our roads. Why is this issue rising?

The main reason for all the problems on the roads are traffic jams. According to a report presented by Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways, the lack of speed, delays at the toll plaza, road accidents cause close to 4000 Crores of loss of in Truck Operating hours. The most shocking revelation was the speed limit on the major highways in the country i.e. 20 Kmph. Scientific Traffic Management and Traffic Education expert, Rohit Baluja quotes, “Despite progress in cities and transport, jams are prevalent due to lack of planning.” It also means that the rate at which volume of transport runs on highway is much higher than the amount of development that need to happen on the highways.

Road designing and traffic management plays a crucial role in solving this problem. Indian government has introduced a scheme where they have developed peripheral express highways to aid the transport speed, where these vehicles do not need to enter the internal arterial roads of a certain city.
