DESIGN OF TOLL PLAZAS FROM THE OPERATOR'S VIEWPOINT

WHILE THE FUNCTION OF THE TOLL GATE IS A SIMPLE ONE OF COLLECTING AND PROCESSING TOLLS, THE PRESENT DAY VERSION, HANDLING HIGH VOLUME TRAFFIC, PRESENTS OPERATING REQUIREMENTS OF CONSIDERABLE COMPLEXITY. SINCE THE TOLLGATE IS AN OBSTRUCTION IN THE ROADWAY, ITS RESTRICTION ON THE FREE MOVEMENT OF TRAFFIC MUST NOT BE INCONSISTENT WITH THE CAPACITY AND STANDARDS OF THE FACILITY IT SERVES. THIS PAPER PRESENTS SOME OBSERVATIONS PERTINENT TO THE DESIGN OF TOLL PLAZAS. /AUTHOR/
