Abstract -
The road network is salvation for economy of any region and social welfare. In observation of dynamicity on road networks and the sharp increase of traffic congestion, accidents, states, the road traffic management becomes more challenging research area. It is need to develop efficient and optimized road network management to prevent the traffic congestion and accidents in the present development. The aim of this paper is to provide a short and snappy review of available various optimization techniques for road network management. Also, open issues on road network optimization is discussed.
