The historic city Ahmedabad is the largest city in the Indian state of Gujarat. The population of Ahmedabad in 2016 is over 7 million people in the city and approximately 8 million in the urban agglomeration. So as solution and improve the overall quality of life of the residents of Ahmedabad, the Government of Gujarat is considering building of a metro transport facility. At present scenario metro construction work are ongoing. Long term work zones on urban Roads leads to many problems such as reduction in capacity, increase the travel time delay, queue length, fuel consumption, and roadway accident which leads to unaccounted economic losses. So it becomes necessary to study and quantify the impact of mass rapid transit system construction work zones on traffic which will further help in estimating the economic loss due to metro rail construction work zone.
