Capacity Analysis of Urban Highway Intersections



In this paper, based on survey data of delays on intersections in urban highways and in accordance with theoretical capacity of each traffic lane, various reasons of delay in intersections are analyzed numerically. A discrete traffic model to simulate traffic in intersections using Gaussian mesh method is built. After modifying intersection properties, weight of each factor in terms of their effect to capacity is acquired. An optimized way to solve traffic delay is hereby recommended.
