AbstractTraffic mapping is the fourth, final, and very important step of the urban transport planning process.the algorithm that was developed using several programs. Such as the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) program, the Digextra algorithm, the Python program, in addition to the (SIDRA-8-2018) program, which is a program specialized in engineering work for methods to determine the shortest path within the selected network during the present time in addition to future strategic periods.Three future periods have been determined to test the road network load with traffic volumes, determine the locations of defects that will occur now and, in the future, and try to find solutions and alternatives that ensure the flow of traffic within this network. Each strategy period included the growth of traffic demand for a period of five years, starting from 2020 until the target year 2025. During these five years, traffic demand is supposed to increase by 6% annually. The results obtained from this study were represented by different plans to address the traffic problems that occur in the different areas of the road network. Those areas were identified and different scenarios and solutions would be required to regulate the traffic for the strategic periods.
