TRAFFIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT OF KHILGAON FLYOVER
This paper aims to delve into the inquisitive understanding regarding the impact of Khilgaon Flyover on roadway
segments along the corridor and also adjacent to the flyover. Traffic flow and congestion degree have been estimated
to justify evaluation of performance of the flyover. Level of Service (LOS) of individual segments as well as that of
the overall facility have been evaluated according to the Highway Capacity Manual by Transport Research Board.
To the best of authors’ knowledge, no study has been previously done at home to evaluate level of service of links
in the influence area of flyovers. This paper has evaluated the performance of segments during weekday day, which
represents the worst traffic conditions. LOS F was found at each segment and also at the total facility, suggesting very
poor traffic conditions. Such findings have the potential to provide proper guidelines to adopt any policy to tackle with
the problem of prodigious traffic growth in Dhaka city.
