This study examined environmental evaluation of the existing road traffic planning implication in Benin City, Nigeria. Transportation is integrated with urban life as an action paving the way to reach economical, social and cultural resources. Transportation planning is a decision-making process that develops through the interactive influence of different sides and their exchange of ideas. These sides consist of individuals and benefit groups, planners and decision-makers. Data for this study were collected from primary sources, through the random administration of two hundred (200) questionnaires and the physical survey. Results from this study revealed that there is a significant impact of the existing road traffic planning implication on transportation land use in Benin City metropolis. This study therefore recommended that the untarred roads within the study area should be tarred, and that government should provide adequate funds to redress the already initiated and future environmental problems on transportation land use in the study area.
