The rapid population growth and increasing economic activities have resulted in tremendous growth of vehicles which is considered as one of the primary factors responsible for increasing the traffic volume in metropolitan cities of developing countries, including Tiruchirapalli in India. The first phase of the project was the determination of reduced percentile spaced between the places Uraiyur and Tennur. The second phase of the project was the determination of the design of National Highway-227 in the area of Tolgate to Lalgudi to analyse the traffic in that road and to design that road according to it. The road safety level in National Highway is majorly based on two parameters, namely reduced percentile speed and design of that road. Thus the study is primarily confined in obtaining the percentile speed and design of the road. The design of the road is majorly based on the Indian Road Congress (IRC).

Keywords: Indian Road Congress, National Highway, Percentile speed, Traffic volume.
