This study is a survey of urban roads and on-street parking in Niger Delta Region- Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. The study generated data with the aid of physical measurements, traffic and volumetric counts. Descriptive and inferential statistical tools were utilized for the data analysis. The results showed that road widths were narrow and could not accommodate on-street parking. Tested hypotheses confirmed that the width of roads and the number of parked vehicles were strongly correlated (r=0.73, P<0.01). The volume of traffic counts and the number of parked vehicles were also strongly correlated (r=0.89, P<0.01). The study therefore recommended traffic management techniques such as vehicle parking regulations and control, and the provision of off-street or multi-storey parking facilities.
Key words: Traffic management, road congestion, vehicle parking, parking facility, volumetric count, Niger Delta.
