Transportation is one of the most critical and difficult issues that university campuses face in the process of transitioning to environmental sustainability. College campuses are very distinct communities. The safety of college campuses has become an issue of widespread concern in recent years. Safety is a growing concern that must be addressed by college campuses. The importance of transportation sustainability has been gradually gaining acceptance among different organizations. Higher education institutions are adopting the concept of sustainable transportation in order to reduce their parking construction and operations costs, improve livability on their campuses, and reduce their campuses’ negative impact on the environment. In this research work the study area selected is CEG campus, Anna University. This research project has been initiated to understand the commuting behaviors and traffic patterns. The existing condition of various roads in the campus is to be surveyed. The appropriate safety measure is to be suggested for enhancing the traffic circulation within the campus. The various surveys on all basic traffic parameters would be collected and apart from this the vital links and critical nodal points are studied in detail so as to enhance the present service levels by improving appropriate traffic furniture and improvements. This study suggests recommendations, along with implementation strategies which ensure Public Safety, Parking Services, and input from the campus community. The results of this project could prove to be a useful tool to help the University to enhance the traffic circulation inside the campus by way of ensuring safety and sustainability.
