A NEW METHOD FOR INVESTIGATING THE OPERATION OF TRAFFIC JUNCTIONS

EINE NEUE METHODIK ZUR BETRIEBLICHEN UNTERSUCHUNG VON VERKEHRSKNOTEN

Since the operation and construction of permanent works for rail and road transport necessitate high expenditure, careful planning of these is essential, from the economic viewpoint alone. This planning should also incorporate a check on their efficiency and utilization rate. The method of investigation shown enables movement patterns at traffic junctions and railway stations of any layout and size to be studied. Examples show that the method, based on the graphic theory, can be adopted for both lane-directed systems and non lane-directed systems, with appropriate revisions. The traffic engineer has with this method a means of analysis at his disposal which offers, at justifiable cost, important aids to decision making for many transportation planning problems.
