In India, the quick development in mechanical and monetary advancement in the urban zones. In urban ranges the size and nature of activity stream will be not quite the same as provincial zones. In the respect, information of the roadway limit is a vital parameter for arranging, examination and operation of roadway framework. Passenger car units are used to represent the effect of varying mixed vehicles types on traffic stream. Traffic on congested highways is of the mixed nature to access the different types of vehicles on highways. This study is concerned to determine the PCU values of vehicles under mixed nature traffic flow at congested highways. An intension of this work is to analyze capacity of two lane undivided national highway in heterogeneous condition. For the capacity estimation it is relatively tough to estimate traffic volume on the road. The problem of measuring flow may addressed by using dynamic PCU values. In this present study the complete process of capacity estimation for NH 209 undivided two lanes has been expressed and the result obtained.
