EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
National Highway Authority (NHA) has been taken another initiative by proposing
development of expressway between Peshawar and Torkham. It is anticipated that with the
development of trade relationship of Pakistan with Afghanistan and other Central Asian
countries, which in turn results boost up of trade related traffic. Therefore, it is the need of the
time that an expressway should be built in between such points of Afghan Border that
connects major potential points within the country. This will offer smooth traffic operational
condition to generated trade traffic movements. This report presents traffic study carried out
for development of the proposed expressway between Peshawar and Torkham.
Keeping in view the importance of the proposed project, traffic study methodology was
devised. Classified traffic volume counts for 24 hrs of a day were observed on continuous
time scale of three days at three main locations of existing roadway between Peshawar and
Torkham. These points were chosen with such logic that the traffic at these points will help
analyzing anticipated traffic on proposed expressway. The traffic study was limited to
provide estimation of anticipated traffic and operational analysis under such circumstances.
In this traffic study, three cases are defined to estimate anticipated traffic on proposed
expressway by giving importance to three criteria such as operational condition, estimation of
financial benefit and pavement design procedure.
In first case it was assumed that all the traffic which is actually run on existing road will
diverge towards proposed expressway, this assumption seems to be logical in a way that the
proposed expressway will attract equal amount of traffic volume as running on existing way
irrespective of that from where it is diverged. This case gives an ideal scenario to analyze
operational condition of proposed expressway. The second case assumed that all heavy
vehicles will diverge and only 30% of local categories traffic volume that serves local
passenger movement will use this expressway. In this case traffic volume anticipated on
proposed expressway is low and therefore this case seems to be an ideal case for estimating
expected benefits. The third case considers the impact of generated traffic due to progressing
trade relationship of Pakistan with Afghanistan and other central Asian countries. In which, it
was assumed that 10% of more heavy traffic as compared to case two will be attracted at the
time of opening of proposed expressway, In this way, case three seems to be an ideal case for
pavement design of this expressway.
This traffic report also comprises presentation of operational analysis of all of the above three
cases, the level of service was obtained on yearly basis up to 20 years life span by forecasting
future year traffic at suitable growth rate. The necessary input required for performing
operational analysis was determined from detailed analysis of traffic volume data at all
collected points.

INTRODUCTION
National Highway Authority (NHA) has planned to construct an expressway from
Peshawar to Torkham (a town near Afghanistan border). Peshawar-Torkham
expressway will serve as a major highway for vehicular movements from Peshawar to
Torkham thereafter will lead to central Asian countries through Afghanistan.
This expressway will provide high level of service to large amount of heavy vehicles
running through Pak Afghan border.
Because of the on going development in trade relationship of Pakistan with
Afghanistan and other Central Asian Countries, it is required that a good quality road
be constructed that would provide an efficient operation of vehicles which are
expected to generate due to growing multi trade activities among them.
Thus, Peshawar-Torkham expressway will be a contributing factor to Pakistans
economic growth, its trade and transport for many years.

1.1

Overview of Study Area


The study incorporates such future traffic movements that are likely to accrue on this
expressway.
There are three major borders through which central Asian trade related traffic will
enter into Pakistan through Afghanistan. Following are the three borders also shown
on the map for the guidance.
1)
2)
3)

Torkham Border
Chaman Border
Haji Gulam Khan (HGK) Border

According to geographical conditions of these three borders the Torkham border is


relatively on upper side of the other two borders. So it is the most attracted point for
Central Asian trade related traffic to enter into Pakistan and move onwards. But due
to poor security condition prevailing in Afghanistan, transport stakeholders avoid long
routes on Afghan land, therefore, they enter into Pakistan from other two points.
Furthermore, Peshawar-Torkham expressway will provide a safe and efficient route
for sea related traffic for onward movement of trade goods to middle-east countries
through Karachi and Gwadar ports. The improving relations between Pakistan and
India will also enhance the importance of this expressway manifold for trade between
India and Central Asian States through Wagha. The network of Pakistan Motorway
thorough out Pakistan will facilitate these movements of trade goods.
The map attached as Figure 1 in which movements are marked help understanding the
above discussion.
The above discussion provides a solid background for constructing PeshawarTorkham expressway and insists to incorporate this viewpoint in traffic analysis study
of Peshawar-Torkham expressway. However, with the limited availability of data
regarding the overall traffic movements, this effect cannot be explained in quantitative
terms but the overall operational analysis can be performed to assess the level of
service of Peshawar-Torkahm expressway under these circumstances.

Objectives of Traffic Study


The objectives under which this traffic study has been carried out are in lined with the
objectives of the whole project and provide baseline input data for planning, design
and economic appraisal of the project.
The main Objectives of the traffic study are:
To study the present traffic pattern and its movement in the vicinity of proposed
expressway alignment
To estimate the anticipated traffic volume at different junctions of proposed
expressway
To ascertain the expected level of service that would prevail during the study period
on the proposed expressway
To anticipate the improvement in the traffic flow conditions of the overall existing
road network in conjunction with proposed expressway

1.3

Scope of Work
The work related to this traffic study has been limited to understand the existing road
network along with traffic pattern. In addition to this, classified traffic volume counts
are collected at different junctions of existing road network in order to anticipate the
traffic volume on proposed expressway. This data will also help analyzing the
operational conditions through capacity analysis procedure of the proposed
expressway during its life span.

1.4

Methodology
To Carryout this traffic study in accordance with the objectives setout above the
following methodology was adopted which is presented in descriptive form as well as
in framework form for clear understanding. Figure 2 depicts various steps involved in
methodology of this traffic study in the form of flow chart called as conceptual
framework of traffic study. The steps involve in the methodology of carrying out this
traffic study are as follows:

Existing Scenario; this step is primarily based on study of existing road network
through available maps, this provide an understanding of whole situation of travel
network along with the identification of points (location) which are of prime
importance in the travel network. Furthermore, this gives an idea about potential
locations which are able to generate considerable traffic volume especially heavy
vehicles.

DATA COLLECTION METHODOLOGY


In accordance with the limited scope of this traffic study data needed for further
analysis is classified volume counts. However, anticipating the length of proposed
expressway traffic volume counts are collected at three points. The subsequent
paragraph discusses justification of taking three points for volume counts.

2.1

Survey Points Identification


The proposed alignment of Peshawar-Torkham expressway intersects at three main
points at existing road between Peshawar and Torkahm. Furhter, the existing road
passes through settlement at Landi Kotal and the proposed alignment of expressway
bypasses this settlement. Figure 3 representing the existing road and proposed
expressway alignment between Peshawar and Torkham. After development of
proposed expressway, there can be different traffic volume conditions at these three
points (indicated in Figure 3). This is because some of traffic volume which originates
from Peshawar may be destined at Landi Kotal or some other settlement in the way
between Peshawar and Torkahm. So because of long length of proposed expressway
the origin & destination may not be the same for whole traffic volume. This variation
in origin & destination can only be explained by taking traffic volume counts at
different points, so in present case 3 points are identified. In addition to this the
location of these survey points is such that one can easily estimate the probable traffic
volume at proposed expressway. The three points identified for counting traffic
volume are
i)
ii)
iii)

Classified Traffic Volume Counts


A comprehensive plan was prepared to conduct the required traffic counts at three
points. All aspects of traffic survey including the schedule, location, methodology,
data collection format etc were taken into consideration and site visits were also made
to various locations in the project corridor before finalizing the program of traffic
survey. Especial efforts are put forwarded to engage required manpower for smooth
conduction of traffic volume counts and training is also provided to them in order to
avoid confusion at later stages.
Classified Traffic volume counts were conducted for 24 hours for two days at all three
main points. Table A-1 in annexure depicts the classified traffic volume counts in
summarized fashion. Vehicles are classified according to the following categories:

TRAFFIC DATA ANALYSIS


Keeping in view the broad objectives of this traffic study, analysis of traffic data has
been carried out to support the above discussed view points and geometric parameters
of proposed expressway. Furthermore, the detailed micro level data is not available
and also one can never project exactly about the economic development situation
between Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central Asian countries. It is entirely difficult to
incorporate the impact of future trade relationship between these countries in this
traffic report. However, a proportion of existing traffic is added in operational
analysis to explain this future economic development. In addition to this, it is
recommended that NHA should conduct a separate study that will incorporate all
inter-border traffic movements along the newly proposed motorways and
expressways.

3.1

Traffic Analysis Methodology


A methodology has been devised according to analysis activities in order to meet the
objectives of this traffic study. In first stage estimation has been performed regarding
traffic volume that could use proposed expressway. In second stage, traffic volume
analysis has been done, which provides the base line data i.e. AADT, Peak Hour
traffic Volume, DDHV to be used in third stage that is operational analysis. The
operational analysis includes sensitivity analysis of the project the details of which is
explained under the heading of Operational analysis in subsequent paragraph.

3.2

Volume Count Presentation


On the existing way between Peshawar and Torkham three points were picked to
carry out traffic volume count survey. This survey was performed for whole day (24
hours) and continued up to three days in one run at a particular point. The data has
been tabulated and presented in Table A-1 to Table A-3 of the Annexure for all three
locations. The Table 2 presents the summarized daily traffic volume at all three
locations for both directions. The Map attached with this report as Figure 3 shows the
location of these three points.

Table 2 presents the average of daily traffic volume counted for three days. In
addition to this it can be seemed from the table that at Jamrud station the ADT is
higher from others two and further at Gul Sher village which is lie in between Jamrud
and Mechani the ADT is lower than jamrud and higher than Mechani post. This can
be explained with the statement that the traffic volume is diverged before reaching at
Gul Sher from Jamrud and same was happened in between Gulsher and Mechani. The
above statement can be more understandable with the geographic location of these
stations marked on the map. The daily variation of volume at these three stations is
shown from Figure 4.

Anticipated Traffic Volume


As it is known that an existing road between Peshwar and Torkham passes from
various localities, in which one of major town is Landi Kotal. The proportion of that
traffic volume whose destination is Torkahm i.e. Afghan Border suffers lower
operational conditions in terms of Level of service. The alignment of expressway
between Peshwar and torkham is such that it will bypass all major localities and in
turn also provides connection to major localities that have potential to produce major
proportion of traffic volume. In addition to this, one of the major advantages of this
expressway is that it also bypasses the Peshawar city through Northern Bypass finally
links with Motorway (M-1), which in turn provides an attraction for that much traffic
volume whose origin or destination is onwards Peshawar city. Through the above
discussion and keeping in view the available data, the exact estimation of anticipated
traffic volume that uses the proposed expressway cannot be determined easily.
However, to remain at the safer side the three cases are devised according to the
following aspects and the operational analysis is performed for all three cases of
anticipated volume.

2)
3)

Page 8

1st Case:
In the first case it is assumed that all the traffic volume will be shifted to propose
expressway this means the anticipated traffic volume (vehicles per day) will remain same
as mentioned in table 2. It is worthwhile to discuss the justification why it is considered
that the whole traffic volume will be shifted towards new expressway, however; in
general it is not realistic approach. The subject matter behind this assumption that
proposed expressway alignment is such that it will passes through many new heavy
populated local localities where existing road doesnt provide any service i.e. Ganj Garhi,
Wauch Gagrai, Labba and Shodanai. Because of that it is assumed that proposed
expressway will generate equal amount of local passenger travel modes (Wagons,
Minibuses and Buses) in order to serve the movements of identified localities.
Furthermore, the geometric conditions, which are speed, pavement conditions and
provision of medians, of expressway is such that it will definitely attract that much
amount of traffic volume whose origin or destination in either direction is Peshawar and
Torkham. This case may serve as critical case, as operational analysis results obtained
from this case are acceptable then it means that proposed alignment and geometric
parameters of expressway is such that it should satisfy the second case.
2nd Case:
In this case it is assumed that only 30% of traffic volume related to modes i.e. Cars, vans,
Pickups, Buses and Minibuses will be used the proposed expressway, all other modes
which are classified as heavy vehicles assumed to be used the proposed expressway. The
reason behind this assumption is that these travel modes are mostly used for passenger
movements from localities near existing roads. This case is simpler in its appearance but
it will be best suitable case for toll analysis or in other words to estimate expected
benefits from the project. Thus this case will help analyzing economic and financial
feasibility of the project as in this case the traffic volume assumed is lower than other
cases so the benefits estimated from this anticipated traffic volume will also come lower
than other cases. In this way this case will guides the economic and financial viability
about the proposed expressway. The estimation of anticipated traffic in this case can be
summarized as follows

Page 9

3rd Case:
This case is the extension of 2nd case as it is assumed in this case that additional 10% of
the traffic will be attracted to use the proposed expressway and to remain on the safer side
this additional 10% of traffic volume is assumed for heavy vehicle categories in equal
proportion. This case relates with the background that how much will be the attracted
traffic volume on the proposed expressway keeping in view the international trade related
traffic volume. In Pakistan, NHA have developed a series of good road network in such a
fashion that it is connected by all potential traffic generator points such that significant
harbours and dry ports (i.e. Gawadar, Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, and Islamabad).
Keeping in view the availability of good road network and smooth traffic operation with
no security hazards in Pakistan one can assumed that with the development of trade
relationship with Afghanistan and Central Asian countries the proposed expressway will
certainly attract good amount of traffic volume. In addition to this, as Pakistan possess
comparatively better security conditions than Afghanistan the transport stakeholders will
prefer shorter travel route in Afghanistan to enter in Pakistan and if it is the case,
according to geographical location of Central Asian countries, Afghanistan and Torkahm
Border of Pakistan, this whole amount of traffic volume will be attracted towards
Peshawar-Torkham expressway and then go onward at any destination in Pakistan or
across Pakistan. Furthermore, this expressway along with the connection of IslamabadLahore motorway provides an economically viable route for goods movements from
Central Asian countries and India or vice versa.
This means the provision of proposed expressway will definitely attract or generate more
traffic volume especially in heavy vehicle categories. The above discussion provides solid
reason for developing 3rd case for anticipated traffic volume. Additionally, this case may
serves as critical or in other words best suitable for determining axle load for pavement
designing. The estimation of traffic volume anticipated for this case is presented in
Table-4.

PCE and Design Hourly Volume Estimation:


Passenger Car Equivalent (PCE) is mostly used as relative term to amplify the traffic
volume i.e. all the travel modes volume is expressed in terms of volume of car. Thus
the PCE for car is taken as 1 and all other travel modes are defined in terms of this
factor according to their relative ness with car. This suggests that for heavy vehicles
the PCE factor should be more than 1. In addition to this, PCE factors play an
important role in operational analysis for proposed expressway as the most of the
traffic volume on this proposed expressway will belong to heavy vehicles categories.
The adopted values of PCE for the operational analysis of the proposed expressway
are presented in Table 5. The rolling terrain is assumed while adopting these PCE,
conversion of traffic volume in terms of Passengers car for all the three cases of
anticipated traffic volume is presented in Table given in Annexure.

As the 15 minute interval traffic volume count is not available, the maximum flow
rate i.e. maximum hourly volume is taken as Peak hour volume and this quantity is
used for further calculations for determining the Design hourly volume (DHV). The
percentage factor k has been estimated in relation to daily volume and peak hour
volume. These factors later were used to convert ADT into DHV for further analysis.
The peak hour traffic volume is along with time of day is presented in Table 6 at all
three traffic volume counting stations.

Table 6 shows that the occurrence of peak hour in relation with traffic volume is
considerably earlier at Jamrud Station in comparison with other two stations. The
possible reason may be the distance of other two stations with Jamrud. This means
that peak hour traffic that passes through Jamrud station was reaching at other two
stations in one hour time frame. If the volume count of 15 minutes interval is
available then other reason for this variation in peak hour timings may be searched
out. The design hourly volume for the entire analysis period has been estimated i.e.
forecasted and the results of the same are presented in Annexure.

TRAFFIC FORECAST
Forecasting of traffic or in other terms projection of traffic volume trend in future
years is required for determination of operational condition of proposed expressway
for upcoming years. This forecasting mainly depends on growth rate of traffic which
in turn depends on socio-economic conditions prevailing in study area. The indicators
which are generally used to determine the growth rate are number of registered
vehicles, historic traffic data, and vehicle ownership and in case of this expressway,
trade relationship i.e. sales record of import and export between two countries plays
vital role in estimating growth rate. Fuel and tyres consumption record may serves as
good indicators for estimation of growth rates. The following paragraphs discuss the
methodology adopted for forecasting of traffic volume for operational analysis.

4.1

Traffic Generation Phenomenon


As discussed in introductory part of this report about the influence of study area in
respect of traffic generation and in addition to this development of three cases for
estimating anticipated traffic volume, the traffic generation phenomenon occurring in
the base year is justified with these estimations. In case three of anticipated traffic
volume the operational analysis has been carried out for generated or in other terms
attracted traffic due to the development of proposed expressway and this volume is
taken as 10% of additional volume of heavy vehicles.

4.2

Traffic Growth Rates:


As discussed earlier growth rates depends on a number of parameters. There are
several growth rates already estimated by numerous numbers of organizations. From
these, one of the reliable sources of data regarding growth rates is the study carried
out under National Transportation Plan JICA and NTRC in 1995. For this traffic study
the same has been adopted. Table 7 shows summarized data of growth rates for
different types of vehicles used in Pakistan.

It is clearly visible from the table 7 that the growth rate for heavy vehicles is around
7%, as in this case of proposed expressway between Peshawar and Torkham heavy
traffic is mostly expected to use this facility, so for convenient in analysis linear
growth rate of 7% is assumed for all vehicles categories and for whole analysis period
as well. The damping factors here are not considered because it is expected that in
future the traffic volume will serve by this road may be higher due to inter trade
relationship of Pakistan with Afghanistan and other central Asian countries.

Projected Average Daily Traffic


Based on above discussion the average daily traffic (ADT) has been projected for the
analysis period of 20 years after the construction of this facility. The year 2009 is
considered as opening year of proposed expressway. The tables in Annexure
presented the summarized data of ADT and corresponding DHV to facilitate
operational analysis

CAPACITY ANALYSIS
The capacity analysis of a transportation facility reflects its ability to accommodate a
moving stream of vehicles in a most diligent way. There are basically two procedures
adopted for capacity analysis which are as follows
1)
2)

Operational Analysis
Design Analysis

Operational analysis is basically the determination of level of service which is based


on the geometric, traffic and other parameters, while Design analysis is the
determination of geometric parameters based on certain supposition of Level of
service. As in the case of proposed expressway basic geometric parameters are known
so it is better to performed operational analysis to ascertain the traffic operation
conditions.
5.1

Operational Analysis
Operational analysis was carried out for three cases of anticipated traffic volume
condition for proposed expressway on the basis of the procedures outlined in the
Highway Capacity Manual published by the Transportation Research Board USA.
The tables in the annexure present operational conditions of proposed expressway on
yearly basis. For Jamrud traffic volume operational analysis has been performed using
design speed equals to 50 mph (80 kmh) and for Gulsher and Mechani post traffic
volume design speed was taken as 32 mph (50 kmh). Certain logical assumptions
were also made while performing operational analysis; these assumptions are
discussed as follows
1.

It is assumed that 90% of vehicle drivers are commuters i.e. only 10% of traffic
volume was assumed for recreational population.

2.

The Directional factor was assumed to be 0.60 in peak hour traffic conditions

The summarized results of the operational analysis are presented in annexure. The
most critical case about anticipated traffic volume condition has come out to be the
first case in which at Jamrud section the level of service condition will reach at level
E at fourth last year of its 20 years of life span. However, for other stations level
service will not fall from level D.

CONCLUSIONS
On the basis of this traffic study the following is concluded:

The proposed project improve the overall traffic operation conditions


especially for heavy vehicles

The proposed geometric design parameters i.e. design speed and number of
lanes found to sufficient for the proposed expressway in respect of Level of
service criteria.

The proposed expressway will definitely capable of providing good traffic


conditions to future attracted traffic (may because of enhance trade
relationship of Pakistan with Afghanistan and Other Central Asian Countries)
within its life span.

The one of the major advantage of the proposed expressway is that it will
carry the load of heavy traffic and resulting in good operational conditions of
the existing road link between Peshawar and Torkham. This will facilitate both
as heavy vehicle traffic and Passenger movement traffic onwards Peshawar.

The 1st case comes out to be more critical in terms of operational analysis, 2nd
case provide an useful estimate of benefits for financial analysis and the 3rd
case proved to be the critical case in pavement designing circumstances.
