Indian cities are witnessing rampant growth in terms of population and economic growth. The urban population percentage increased from 28.6% in 2001 to 37.7% in 2011. Being a leading IT exporter, Bengaluru sees an increasing number of commercial buildings burdening the existing road infrastructure, leading to heavy congestion in particular areas of Bengaluru. This calls for an understanding of any upcoming commercial development before it is thoroughly established to take adequate measures to reduce the negative impacts. However, the Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) using the traditional four-stage modeling cannot be used in the current context due to the impact of COVID-19 on the existing traffic. This paper adopts an improved methodological framework that can be used to evaluate the impact of traffic in any situation. An average of 6.6% percentage increase (maximum 25% on some roads) in V/Cs is observed before and after the new development on the adjoining roads. To improve the level of service, several scenarios are considered and analyzed to provide the best mitigation strategies. This improved methodological framework can help to evaluate a new development’s impact for any given situation, and what mitigation strategies and types of transportation improvements may be essential to maintain a smooth moving traffic with a satisfactory level of service.
