various aspects of freight transportation across all modes, including pollution, safety, and, to a more limited degree, congestion. How governments tax, regulate, and make investment decisions across modes could affect relative freight shipping prices. If government policy results in giving one mode of freight transportation a cost advantage over Traffic congestion is a perpetual problem for the sustainability of transportation development. Traffic congestion causes delays, inconvenience, and economic losses to drivers, as well as air pollution. Identification and quantification of traffic congestion are crucial for decision-makers to initiate mitigation strategies to improve the overall transportation system’s ://

The study focuses on the transportation system in Kumasi Metropolis, Ghana. Kumasi was chosen for the research due to its strategic location as a transit point to the north, south, central and western parts of Ghana, which makes it prone to traffic congestion.
The congestion, that delay is but one cost of a system that has many costs and even more beneﬁts. Further, by changing accessibility, transportation gives shape to the development of land. Modalism and Intermodalism Transportation is often divided into infrastructure modes: e.g.

The congestion charging scheme is regarded as a successful measure to reduce traffic-related problems.
