Capacities and LOS Measures of Intersections

10 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

Urbanization and industrialization has caused a drastic revolution all over the world. Intersections are crucial to street’s performance. They control a speed, safety, cost, and efficiency, making right turns the key design factor in intersections improvements and operations. In Anand city of Gujarat state, due to increasing population growth and increased traffic need Capacity Evaluation selected intersections. Borsad Chowkdi-which is highly congestible, and similarly Ganesh Chowkdi and Janta Chowkdi with similar traffic conditions has been selected. Using two methods e.g.IRC-65 Method and HCM-2000 method Capacity of two Roundabouts and One un-signalized intersection has been evaluated. IRC-65(1976) method based on the geometrics of Rounabouts and give the Capacity of entire Intersections. HCM-2000 method, Design parameters are Critical Gap and Follow up Time based on Gap Acceptance Method, give the each leg Capacity.

Keyphrases: capacity, critical gap, Follow up time, gap acceptance, intersection, Roundabout
