Abstract:
ABSTRACT This paper discusses about the traffic conditions in and around Christian Medical College, Vellore and also the development of different routes around the hospital. The main aim of the survey was to analyze the traffic conditions and contributing problems around the hospital area and delay in the timing of ambulances to reach its destination. An unconventional approach was developed to calculate the approximate delay and main obstructions on the path traversed. An origin and a destination were identified using Google Maps and a network was created involving different intermediate and alternative routes. Speed and Delay studies along with small scale traffic volume survey were done to identify the delay causing elements. These elements were a general reflection of the psychological and social characteristics of the population around the institute. Measures were suggested to reduce these delays on whole so as to minimize the risk of deaths inside the ambulances. Keywords: Urbanization, Traffic volume, Speed and Delay studies, Ambulances, Safety.
