One of the complex problems faced by the city municipalities is the traffic congestion. It makes life in urban areas uncomfortable for citizens. Each years the municipalities squanders large chunks of money to resolve this problem. The eastern region of Pune is experiencing this problem especially during peak hours, due to improper traffic planning and poor infrastructure design. In this paper the traffic congestion causes are analyzed for the road connecting the Hadapsar and Kondhwa in eastern Pune and design of proper planned road intersection was proposed. The congestion was measured by determining flow rate and number of different types of vehicles passing during peak hour by generating Traffic Volume Count (TVC) report and the choice of the optimal solution should be the result of a complex, well-organized and optimized process. Updated techniques, devices and software such as BIM tools are available nowadays, to integrate all the involved aspects.
