Delay at signal-controlled intersections
- 39 Downloads
Two approaches are in common use for calculating traffic delays at signal-controlled junctions. The first method, based on steady-state queueing theory, is relevant to situations of relatively constant traffic demand where demand does not exceed about 90 per cent of capacity. More recently, time-dependent queueing theory has been developed, applicable to all traffic states including time-varying demand and ‘oversaturation’.
