traffic delay

The influence of the traffic light`s permissive signal share on the duration of traffic delays

Today, the motorization level and the value of traffic flow on the street-road network have increased. Often this leads to an excessive load on the existing traffic management system, highways, and roads. As a result, the number and duration of traffic delays are increasing, especially within populated areas. The consequence of this is the formation of traffic jams, increase of fuel and lubricants consumption, noise pollution, and emissions of exhaust gases. Another, no less critical consequence is an increase in traffic accidents, particularly at unsignalized intersections.

Analysis of saturation flow on isolated lanes of controlled intersections with significant traffic intensity

The methods and results of the investigation of intervals between vehicles during queue dissipation before controlled intersections with the further determination of saturation flow are reviewed in this paper. Having reviewed existing methods of determining the saturation in traffic flows, those are determined which provide the most certain results in conditions of intensivemovement and take into account quite a large number of impact factors.

Justification of the criteria for allocation of separate lanes for urban public transport

The article is devoted to the methodology and research results of traffic flow parameters on the arterial streets, where different regimes of prioritizing urban public transport operate. The regularities of changes of such parameters make it possible to identify and differentiate the sections of transport network in terms of service efficiency, with the aim to implement various regulatory measures that would help to minimize delays in traffic flow.
