Analysis of the Capacity of Intersections with Fixed-time Signalling Depending on the Duration of the Green Phase for Pedestrians
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: The article aims to analyze the capacity conditions of intersections with constant-time traffic lights using a road transport micro-modeling tool. The article uses actual data on intersections and then a model was made in the PTV Vissim program of the existing state and the changed state about the duration of the green time for pedestrians shortened to the minimum resulting from Polish regulations, the relationship between the length of the pedestrian path and the speed of pedestrian movement, but not less than 8 seconds. The results were tested at different intersections depending on the number of entrances as well as different stages of traffic lights.
