Traffic flow and tours represent one of the most important issues in what is known as city planning since their results show how the main street, hi ways, and intersections look like and how they are connected to each other to give the maximum performance and traffic flow during the different time intervals including the rush hours.
In this paper we present a traffic model for AlNajaf City based on graph theory, Minimum Spanning Tree, and Shortest Path Algorithms. The model shows the best network paths and alternative tours for the traffic flow in the main streets and intersections in different rush hours. Different tools and software were used in the implementation of the proposed model, including MatLab( Matrix-Laboratory ) , AutoCad, and others.
