Introduction 1.1 Traffic and Transportation Transportation is an essential for a nation’s development and growth. Transportation system planners focus on designing new transportation systems and upgrading the existing one. Transport infrastructure includes rural, urban and national roads, airports, railroads, and water transport networks. These designs and layouts are initiated with the need analysis. Roads and Highways are part of a bigger transport system. The transportation system is used to refer to the equipment and logistics of transporting passengers and goods whereas, Traffic is the vehicles moving on public infrastructure (including road and highway). Assessment, analysis, design, control and management of vehicles moving on roads is termed as Traffic engineering. 1.2 A typical transportation system Transport infrastructure consists of the fixed installations, including roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals and pipelines and terminals such as airports, railway stations, bus stations, warehouses, trucking terminals, refueling depots (including fueling docks and fuel stations) and seaports. Traditionally, people think about the transportation system as using roads and bridges to move both goods and people. While roads and bridges are a critical part of the transportation network, people also rely upon other systems of transportation, including: Airports to transport people and goods long distances in a short period of time Railways to move Passenger and freight intercity
