Abstract: he increasing imbalance between the volume of traffic on the urban streets of developing countries and their physical capacities is resulting in severe congestion scenario. The disparity between demand and supply is the result of fast improving socioeconomics of the people resulting in steep rise of vehicle ownership, accompanied by slow development of transportation infrastructure. Srinagar in India is one such city wherein the streets have lately experienced sudden rise of traffic volumes, catching the concerned departments unawares. The scenario is made worse by occupation of street space by hawkers, mobile shops and standing vehicles. The present study primarily focuses on analysing the traffic congestion scenario of the city streets and determining the influence of on-street parking on the same. It divides the study area (Srinagar City) into five broad zones. Twenty-two arterials and sub-arterials of road network are considered for the study. Data are collected for traffic volume count, road geometry, pedestrian count, free flow and average travel speed, varying travel speed, travel time and travel cost at different links and major intersections. Household interview survey is also conducted. Roadway congestion index is the indicator used to quantify congestion. Roadway congestion indices are separately determined for arterials and sub-arterials. Both the width and length of the street space occupied by parked vehicles have an influence on traffic flow and hence volume to capacity ratio. The relationship between the ratio of volume to capacity and the ratio of street area occupied by parked vehicles to total area of street-space is also being modelled. The study also reports the levels of congestion on various links of both arterials and sub arterials. The results are expected to help the authorities in framing and prioritising the improvement schemes.
