SYSTEM DESIGN FOR LIGHT RAIL TRANSIT IMPROVES INTERSECTION PERFORMANCE

At-grade light rail transit crossings represent not only a safety hazard but a roadway capacity constraint as well. An analysis of the problem of traffic control at such locations was undertaken in Edmonton, Alberta. It led to the objectives which in turn resulted in the implementation of control measures. Significant improvements have been achieved through the application of Transportation Management principles.
