Abstract: This report serves to study the mitigation measures of peak hour traffic congestion. Traffic congestion is due to seven types of sources that can be grouped into 3 categories, mainly due to increase in demand and lag in supply. Due to an increase in traffic congestion, we must constantly come up with mitigation measures and fine tune it along the way. So as to improve the road network, giving the public a much more pleasant experience and also saving the environment. A general study has been done to understand how traffic congestion comes about, the different types of traffic mitigation strategies used based on supply and demand principle. After the types of traffic mitigation strategies used are studied, data was collected to find out which congestion mitigation strategy is effective. Research conducted over 200 motorists in Singapore has shown that the use of road shoulders can be the most effective traffic mitigation strategy. Followed by, road pricing, traffic signal coordination, building of more roads, good response team and flexible working schedule. These effective traffic mitigation strategies were analysed further to study its feasibility and then recommended to be used in Singapore. With these recommended mitigation strategies, we could further complement existing strategies hence improving traffic congestion in Singapore.
