Recently  Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority(HMDA) done traffic survey on city roads, Mainly concentrated on busiest road, high traffic zones, how widely public transport is used etc.,

From a Survey of 61 different roads...

  • Begumpet flyover tops the list in terms of vehicular movement i.e., on an average Everyday, more than 2.66 lakh vehicles pass over this road-over-bridge, one of the busiest stretches in the city.

  • NH9 Road near MALAKPET follows next with traffic of 2.21 lakh.

  • Alugadda bhavi near Mettuguda placed third with 1.39 lakh vehicles.

he heavy reliance on personal transport gets noticed across all the observation points and underscored from the data at Rail Nilayam where vehicles meant for public transport were 1,953 while the private vehicles stood at 1.4 lakh

The CTS field surveys at 26 locations between Thondapalli, Falaknuma, Yakutpura, Vidyanagar, Sitaphalmandi, Safilguda, Bolaram and Venkatpur documented private vehicles to be more than 20 times than the number of public transport. At some places, the gap widens to almost 100 times as in case of Bolaram where against 79 public transport vehicles, the personal vehicles were counted to 7,231.

On traffic composition, the study came out with an inference on two-wheelers comprising 60 per cent and cars, another 18 per cent. Coming to the hourly variation, it considered 9 a.m. to 12 noon and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. as peak hours and found traffic to comprise 37 per cent of daily traffic during these six hours.
