In Ghana, most junctions are managed by semi - Intelligent Traffic Systems with a fixed-time traffic control. This has become possible due to the advancement of the transport management. Despite these technologies, traffic control is still an issue as policemen sometimes direct traffic even when there are working traffic lights. This is so because the systems have not been adjusted properly to help with good traffic flow. This paper will not focus on exploring how to measure these intelligent systems. It will focus on how Roundabouts since they are often used at large intersections in Ghana. With no intelligent traffic system, the traffic wardens manage traffic. Performance will be based on comparison with existing models. Through the results, this dissertation will outline the benefits of using such a system and the chain reaction it will cause.
