What are some possible solutions to reduce traffic congestion in big cities? Please, give specific reasons and examples.
Transportation is a function to provide for the movement of people and products from one place to another place safely and efficiently, with minimum negative impact on the environment. The main idea for transportation is based on traffic congestion. Traffic congestion is a critical problem which happens on roads which make traffic busy because roads full of cars and buses. Traffic congestion challenges traffic vehicle flow in urban area and is prevented smooth traffic. A big city creates complex problems in daily life with traffic.
Firstly, congestion problems cannot be resolve only by applying physical constructing such as: build bridge, highways and increasing road capacity. It is necessary to build technology system for transportation management which is used for control of the traffic problems. Traffic control systems have direct influence on traffic problems which is help to improve traffic flow and reduce traffic congestion. Usually, traffic jams are caused by many reasons such as incidents, works in roads, roads maintenance. Traffic congestion occurs at peak times in the morning or evening when people are travelling to work. For examples, since 2003, a congestion charge zone was established in Central London, and extended into parts of west London on 19 February 2007. Each vehicle has to pay money for a day for travelling within the zone between 7am and 6pm (Monday-Friday). It aims to reduce congestion, pollution and raise investment funds for London’s transport system.
Transportation and traffic congestion problems have been studied by many researchers and many solutions have been proposed to solve it. Improving transportation includes many ways to improve traffic performance in major cities and highways. The Government is responsible for improving the efficiency of transportation in cities and highways between cities which...
