Assessment at Al-Ameer signalized intersection in Samawa city
Building and Construction Engineering Department, University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq
The aim of this paper is to evaluate traffic performance of Al-Ameer signalized intersection in Samawa city, which fits with the prevailing conditions and geometric properties of the intersection. The technique of video recording has used for collection the traffic volume data for all approaches. These data are abstracted from video films. SYNCHRO 8 software was used to evaluate and analyze the intersection and choose the best suggestion. The evaluation process result showed that the intersection is operated with level of service (LOS F). By suggestion of several strategies which vary from signal optimization to geometric improvements. The best solution has been found by suggestion an overpass at the east-west direction, and the level of service has improved from (LOS F) to (LOS C), this result is considered an acceptable and economical solution for the existing problems at intersection.
