Each and every city would be enhanced with word "Smart". Various problems like traffic congestion, pollution and high accident rate are mainly due to rapid urbanization and motorization which are the major issues in achieving goal to make a city "Smart". The problem can be overcome to a great extent with optimization of signal cycle length which takes pedestrian crossing time into consideration. This paper mainly focuses on pedestrian crossing which is the most dangerous component in transport field. The behaviour of pedestrian crossing under mix traffic condition at signalized intersection is needed to be considered while optimizing signal cycle and designing crosswalks. The pedestrian clearance time is affected by various pedestrian characteristics and surrounding environment under mixed traffic condition. Pedestrian behaviour need to be analysed for safe and efficient traffic management. This paper considers presents the behaviour of pedestrians at an urban signalized intersection with an objective to suggest factors to be considered for traffic safety at intersections.
