Abstract This case study represents a typical example of surveying and assessing traffic characteristics along a local ring road in Doha City. Expected impacts of possible short-term (5-year) traffic management schemes for two main intersections were evaluated utilizing available PC software programs. Results indicate variations in traffic characteristics among different directions, sections and segments of the studied ring road. An optimum short-term management scheme was chosen for each of the two main intersections under study and the corresponding queuing delays and volume-to-capacity ratios were assessed. The study recommends more comprehensive traffic surveys in the future that should be undertaken as an integral part of a traffic master plan for Doha City. This master plan is a must for taking sound decisions concerning needed traffic management schemes.en_US
