Abstract

Unsignalized intersections belong to the most common ways of traffic management at intersections. The capacity of the minor entries depends on many factors. One of them is the traffic flow pattern on the major street. In the case of slow-moving queue of vehicles on the main street caused by a downstream traffic signal, the capacity of movements on the minor street joining the queue of vehicles on the main street is significantly reduced. The surveys of traffic parameters were performed in three Polish cities: Wroclaw, Opole, and Krakow. On the basis of these studies, a simulation model representing the traffic conditions at such an intersection was developed. The influence of pedestrian traffic and the number of storage spaces in the median on the possibility of vehicles from the minor entries joining the queue of vehicles on the main street was examined.

Keywords
