To improve the traffic flow at the Bhimavaram intersection along State Highway 165 in Andhra Pradesh, traffic survey is conducted which include road inventory, volume count and turning movements along the four arms towards the intersection. Volume accumulation curve is developed and the peak volume and peak time is obtained. From the analysis it is found that the peak volume is of 2896 passenger car equivalence during 9.30 to 10.30 hours at this intersection. Volume to capacity ratio is found as 0.8 and it will reach one before 2024 which will make high level of congestion and poor level of service. To manage this Transport System Management concepts are suggested in various scenarios which may reduce the volume well lesser (0.3) than the capacity.
