TRAFFIC CHARACTERISTICS ON A TWO-LANE ROAD

VERKEERSKENMERKEN OP EEN TWEESTROOKSWEG

On a two-lane road traffic flows in both directions are examined over a road length of 1200 M. Average and percentile speeds differ considerably as a function of place. In the second part of the measuring site however these speed parameters tend to a constant path. During a period of constant rate of flow the average speeds of partial groups fluctuate considerably. Headway distributions differ significantly after 400 meters road length. The average cluster size keeps growing as a function of place. Between rate of flow and average cluster size there is a significant linear relation on a cross section. (Author/TRRL)
