Theoretically, at many traffic facility during peak hour, speedflow relationship is only appeared as a normal flow, represented by half of speed-flow curve. Forced flow will only occur during severe overcrowding resulted in drivers trying to use all the space in a way so that the amount of overcapacity. The purpose of this study is to analyse the relationship between speed-flow traffic flows along a basic segment. The objectives of this study is to analyse the time series of speed and flow at basic segment of A550 and A551 study location for 24 hours in a month as well as to determine the maximum flow and critical speed through the speed-flow models. Data obtained from this study were analysed using video recording and image processing techniques. In order to achieve these objectives, the Federal Highway 2 was selected as location for the study. Results show that the speed – flow diagram in one month on both A550 and A551 obtain the maximum flows and critical speeds of 4200 and 5320 veh/hr/ln and 55 and 60 km/hr, respectively.
