Using Linked MOVA Control on a Small Roundabout

Research carried out at the Hobby Horse roundabout in Leicestershire suggested that short-cycle fixed time plans would result in significantly lower average delays than the single stream MOVA that was currently operating. This generated considerable interest at the JCT symposium in 2008 and as a result, the Highways Agency and their contractor decided to put the matter to the test. This paper describes the 2 short-cycle fixed time CLF plans that were trialed, and then the subsequent development of a Linked MOVA control strategy for the roundabout. Two different ways of applying this technique are described and evaluated and the relevance of this work to other small roundabouts is considered.
