Most of the infrastructure projects in India run into trouble due to managerial factors rather than technical problems. The negligence in the overall management strategies not only affects the project time and cost but also to the community and the surrounding environment. Construction of large infrastructure project like Metro Rail Project is of prolonged duration of 10-15 years in an upcoming metro city. We all know that these projects are for social welfare through providing public transport facilities but for such a long tenure of actual execution work on roads, we totally neglect about systematic management strategies not to cause inconvenience to the commuters around. In this research paper we are going to analyze the freeway and arterial road congestion and the out turns of execution work to the surrounding society experiencing actual site conditions. Traffic characteristics and the standards designed will support this research work. Hence as a duty of civil engineer, suggesting some traffic diversion strategies as well as following some other useful norms can help to curtail the current trouble faced.
