Abstract

Due to increase in population and the attraction of human activities into urban region which in turn leads to the growth of vehicle ownership and use, there is demand for road space which has led to increase in the number of public transport operation. Consequently, the demand for road space is greater than the supply because the rate of provision of transport facilities is less than the rate of growth of vehicle ownership and use which result into traffic congestion. Traffic congestion is the impedance of vehicles imposed on each other due to speed-flow relationship in conditions where the use of transport system approaches capacity. Traffic congestion in Nigeria, taking Basorun-Akobo Road in Ibadan Oyo State as a case study has been analysed using experimental and theoretical approaches. These involve traffic counting and delay survey. In order to carry out effective research work on the case study road, the method adopted were traffic counting and traffic delay survey. The effect of traffic congestion on the study area are Waste of time, Delay movement, Accident, Inability to forecast travel time, Fuel consumption, Road rage and environmental pollution. Possible solutions to traffic congestion on the case study area is to: Dualize the Road, Provide Adequate Parking Space, Construct proper Drainage and Install Traffic Control Devices.
