THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SCOOT IN THE CITY OF NIJMEGEN IN THE NETHERLANDS

The application of SCOOT in Nijmegen to an area including 40 intersections is outlined and the results discussed. Details are given of gating, bus priority and treatment of the main roundabout at Keizer Karelplein. Experience of operating the system since October 1993 is described. As the Nijmegen road network was known to be particularly sensitive to congestion, the congestion importance factors on all links leaving the roundabout were set to the highest value and adjustments made to filter links. A further safeguard against congestion was the installation of congestion detector loops. The views of some of the system's operators are reported. For the covering abstract see IRRD 865401.
