Traffic Census is the baseline of Transportation Engineering. All management as well as engineering operations are done on the basis of this only. There is a considerable variations in flow, so for the purpose of designing averaging of these counts is done into single volume count. There are four main methods of Traffic Census namely Manual Method, Automatic Method, Combination of Manual and Automatic Method and Photographic Methods. All these have their pros and cons. These have different preferences with respect to Accuracy, ease of Documentation, Versatility and economics. Three main methods of Traffic Analysis IRC, U.K method and U.S.A practices have been discussed along with IOWA Department of Transport guidelines for measurement of Congestion. For better management of Traffic, duration of Survey as per IRC has to be increased as urban areas are moving from Developed to developing. Sanat Nagar/Rawalpora Intersection is the most important that is encountered in 17.8km stretch of NH1A Bypass which is expected to be the jugular Vein of the Greater Srinagar City. It can be considered as a place where whole of Kashmir meets. A case study of Traffic Census and Analysis of the said intersection is presented
