STUDY ON IMPROVING TRAFFIC PARAMETERS AT AN INTERSECTION IN THE CITY OF SIBIU
This paper presents different aspects that must be considered during the reconfiguration of agglomerated road junctions in Sibiu. In the first part road traffic data is highlighted along with tables with traffic speed on certain road sections. The study was made with focus on the following junctions: Milea, Semaforului, Rahovei and it analyzes the number of vehicles that cross this intersection, the traffic speed, the factors that have an influence over this feature and the measures that must be taken in order to have a continuous and lean traffic flow. The service level was determinates by calculating the road traffic capacity. The intersection was reconfigured by building an underground passage that will eliminate all collision points. Further, it was reconfigured by making a roundabout above the underground passage. The conclusions emerged from the traffic parameters calculations and how this particular junction should be reconfigured in order to reduce congestion.
