Description

This project proposes two possible solutions for the phasing plan of the intersection near the City Hall of Leiria and presents the calculations of the cycle length and the intersection delay for both of them. The main goal of these solutions is to optimize the global functioning of the intersection. Since the number of cars that use an intersection is will fluctuate with time, when using pre-timed traffic lights, adjustments are needed to the settings of the traffic signals, to assure the accommodation of the present traffic flows in the intersection under acceptable conditions for drivers.
