Geometric factors affecting the capacity of a traffic signal approach

  • R. J. Salter

Abstract

The capacity of a signal-controlled intersection is limited by the capacities of individual approaches to the intersection. There are two types of factors which affect the capacity of an approach: geometric factors which are considered in this chapter, and traffic and control factors which are discussed subsequently.
