MOTORWAY TRAFFIC STUDY: PROBLEMS OF SATURATION AND FLOW

ETUDE DE TRAFIC SUR AUTOROUTE: PROBLEMES DE SATURATION ET PROPAGATION DES DEBITS

The paper considers the problems of the operation of interurban motorways under two aspects: part 1, traffic forecasts obtained from the propagation of traffic flow (flow waves, flow wave velocity); part 2, devoted to the problems of traffic flow (congestion, aerial observations); also in this chapter are found the presentation and methodology of the surveys. In the appendix, different tables explain the results of the surveys. The whole study was carried out on the A7, at the junction between the A7 and A9 to the north of Orange. /TRRL/
