Urban road networks show the main role in urban spatial structures. The study was attempted to investigate the expected utilization of network analysis to determine the shortest road to Diyala provincial council in Baqubah. The distance is taken as a base so as to pursue out the most effective route and therefore the period is taken as a base so as to search out the shorter road from the eight interning to reaching the Central business district (C.B.D) social, and economic activities. Spatial analysis has been most preferable to assess road networks with geographic data system (GIS) spatial analysis technology. The model was tested using the urban road network data (distance, intersection, actual travel time, and direction). It was concluded that GIS is a crucial tool for the success of the new urban informed decision-making in its planning process. The simplest solution was found for traffic problems and congestion within the city center. Drivers and road users would benefit from knowing the shortest route since it would allow them to save money on transportation, save time, and prevent traffic congestion on commuter routes by diverting excess traffic to less utilized alternative routes. The best route from the five north entering to reaching the C.B.D was founded road No.1.
