The article describes the results of the research, whose goal is to assess the effectiveness of the traffic light operation at crossroads with unstable transport demand in terms of time and directions. The modern way of cities development consists in creation of sustainable, and, hence, safe, harmless and comfortable environment for residing. This determines the separation of urban and industrial areas, the creation of transport infrastructure, in particular crossroads, which are equipped with traffic lights. As a rule, it is characterized by unstable transport demand in the direction of entry and exit from the territory of enterprises, which causes an inadvertent increase in the idle time of vehicles in the main direction. In the course of experimental studies, the authors found that the crossroads under consideration are parts of the road network that connect the industrial and urban areas, which causes a high traffic intensity in the main areas. At the same time, the share of ineffective resolving phase for entry and exit from the territory of the enterprise reaches 70-80%, which increases the idle time of vehicles in the main direction. The authors proposed an indicator that characterizes the proportion of inefficient operation of the traffic signal.
