In this paper we analyse the concepts of fuzzy graph coloring identifying the concept of k-fuzzy coloring in a new approach. Also we discuss some concepts on strong arcs in fuzzy graphs and fuzzy line graphs.Also we identify the problem of traffic congestion in round abouts using the strength of connectedness with arcs connected such as $\alpha$ strong arcs, $\beta$ strong arcs, and $\delta$ arcs. $G:\langle V,E \rangle$ is obtained using concept of strong adjacency.
