While vehicle ownership and traffic volume increase rapidly in cities, road networks and capacity do not increase at the same speed and this causes bottlenecks.
Especially the problems experienced in the zoning plans and the high expropriation costs make it difficult to open new road networks.
In this case, the most important solution is to use the existing capacity efficiently. The willingness of the administrations to produce economic solutions makes it obligatory to bring suggestions on the subject.
For more efficient use of road networks and for the solution of congestion at intersections;
Creation of parking lots, horizontal and vertical markings, planning of optimum times in signalized intersections, designing bicycle roads, developing pedestrianization suggestions as well as preparation of road and traffic arrangement projects in order to establish a sustainable traffic management system are needed.
In order to solve the existing problems, we make investigations in the field with our expert team, and we collect existing and new data. We produce transportation plans based on the analysis of the collected data in the office environment.
The project consists of the following stages.
• Traffic counts to measure traffic volume on roads and junctions.
• Preparation of circulation plans.
• Preparing geometrical arrangement and parking lot projects.
• Preparing simulations.
• Preparation of horizontal and vertical marking projects.
• Preparation of signaling plans.
• Development of bicycle and pedestrian way projects.
In order to measure the traffic volume on roads and junctions, crossroads, cross sections, cords / curtains and pedestrian counts are conducted. The counts are processed with cameras at the peak and normal hours and the vehicles are classified in the office environment according to their class, type and size given the time intervals.
Circulated and geometrically arranged road network and intersections are simulated and the solution is proposed among the options that gives the best results. The improvement achieved through the comparison of current situation and the proposed project is evaluated with respect to several criteria, such as time and tail length, and the benefits are reviewed.
Additionally, if necessary, the simulations are created for pedestrian currents in order to observe the mobility in the attraction centers.
Horizontal and vertical marking projects are prepared for the hazard warning, traffic arrangement, information, pause and parking, construction, maintenance and repair signs of the projects, for which road and crossroad geometric arrangements have been completed within the framework of the rules and standards specified in the Highway Traffic Law.
While conducting traffic regulation projects, signalization projects are prepared at intersections that are designed to be signalized. Phase number and duration are decided according to the traffic volume of the junction.
Continuous, safe bike paths and parking areas are designed in sections that are compatible with the zoning plans and where the road section allows.
Arrangement, orientation, horizontal and vertical marking projects are prepared in the sections allocated as parking areas.
