DELAY AND ACCIDENT CHANGES FROM QUEUE SPLITTING

This paper brings together the results of two other papers. The earlier of these two papers suggests that the number of accidents at a T-junction would increase if that junction were made into two T-junctions. The later paper demonstrates the savings in delay to side road traffic wishing to enter the main road which would be obtained by splitting a simplified junction into two. In the comparison made in this paper of these results it is found likely that the expected accident costs would be higher than the value of the delay saved.
