Country Report--Poland: Roundabouts Use in Poland and Developments in Their Design

The introduction presents the historical background of roundabout use in Poland. Next guidelines for roundabout design are described together with the edition of the guidelines for all at-grade intersections design and recent manuals for capacity analyses of at-grade intersections. The paper presents contents of the guidelines for designing of mini, small and medium roundabouts. Then some typical errors in roundabout design are discussed. The last part of the paper presents some new developments in roundabout design including the double, the spiral, "infinity" shaped and cigar shaped roundabouts. Finally, needs for further research in the area of roundabout safety and operation are suggested.
