THE CONTROL OF RIGHT-TURNING VEHICLES AT SIGNAL-CONTROLLED INTERSECTIONS

This paper describes a unique form of traffic signal- controlled highway junction in which the major highway is rechannelised to allow a right-turning movement to take place without the necessity for an additional right-turning phase or late and early start facilities. Traffic actions at both the conventional form of traffic signal approach and the unique form have been simulated and the resulting delays to right-turning vehicles compared. Field studies have been used to obtain the input parameters to the simulation models and also to validate the models themselves. The suggested form of junction shows considerable reduction in delay for vehicles making a right turn. /Author/TRRL/
