This paper presents some of the results of traffic engineering studies of the Agra Heritage Project (AHP) area in Agra, India, in relation to Agra's tourist strategy and the development of appropriate infrastructure facilities. The project included detailed studies of: (1) the layout of intersections; (2) the traffic conditions of intersections; (3) parking supply and demand; and (4) street traffic patterns. The road network in the AHP area contains about 75 intersections, 36 of which were initially identified for detailed study on the basis of their location and traffic flow. Geometrical layouts and traffic trends were studied for 24 of these intersections. 14 major parking areas were identified for study in the area. A limited origin-destination survey and classified volume count was conducted for 24 hours at nine selected points on major routes. An inventory was taken of major land uses in the area. Recommendations for proposed designs and improvements were made in relation to: (1) the circulation pattern for regional and local traffic; (2) intersection geometry and design improvements; (3) parking provisions; (4) various general improvements; and (5) the development of a proposed light rail transit system mainly serving tourists.
