Control of Congestion in Highly Saturated Networks: Survey\ud Design and Data Collection

By D.J. Quinn


This working paper describes the initial stages of a tlfollow-uptl\ud study of the control of highly saturated signalised junctions in\ud Bangkok. The previous study has been reported in WP 220, WP 221\ud and WP 222.\ud This paper describes why particular junctions were chosen for\ud this second study and reports on the results of a survey designed\ud to produce the data input requirements for TRRL1s TRANSYT\ud program. TRANSYT is a method of finding the "bestt1 fixed-time\ud plans with which to co-ordinate the traffic signals in any\ud network of roads for which the average traffic flows are known.\ud While this paper deals with the data input requirements, such as\ud average flows, the results of an experiment comparing TRANSYT\ud recommended signal timings with Traffic Police control will be\ud described in a subsequent paper (WP 251).\u
