Measurement of signalised intersection performance (ii)

This paper is a revision of civil engineering working paper no 78/1, which was presented at the 1979 annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board. It describes a survey technique for the measurement of signalised intersection performance. Although simple to perform in the field, it yields a wealth of information on such parameters as vehicular delay and variability of delay, pedestrian delay, and variability of delay vehicular flow rate, total number of effective vehicular stops and a complete record of the signal phasing timing. Details are given for implementation of the technique as a conventional field survey, an 'instant analysis' field survey as a simulation model subprogram.
