The problem of lane choice at signalised intersections (i.e. the division of different movements between different lanes) is considered from both theory and observation. Two simple theoretical models are described, one being that used by the traffic simulation-assignment model SATURN and the other based on Wardrop's principle of route choice in networks. Observations using time-lapse photography were carried out at two intersections in Leeds and fit reasonably well with the theoretical predictions. (Author/TRRL)
