This paper investigates the performance of signalised intersections in metropolitan areas with mixed traffic conditions using a micro simulation-based approach facilitated by the VISSIM software. The study aims to enhance understanding of intersection dynamics and inform traffic management in complex urban settings. Methodology involves VISSIM for accurate microsimulation, incorporating traffic volumes, vehicle types, and signal timings for scenario creation. Various simulations assess intersection performance across diverse traffic flows and signal strategies. Results reveal insights into intersection behaviour under different conditions. Analysis of trends, congestion patterns, and signal effectiveness underscores the importance of adaptive signal control strategies in addressing mixed traffic challenges. The research contributes to signalised intersection knowledge, showcasing VISSIM's utility in such analyses of Four signalised intersections were selected as situated at the signalised intersection of Maharana Pratap (M.P. Nagar) Square in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. Practical implications extend to traffic engineers, urban planners, and policymakers, guiding strategies to improve intersection performance and urban mobility.
