Average queue lengths at the commencement of the green period

  • R. J. Salter


In the design of traffic signals it is often desirable to be able to estimate the queue length at the beginning of the green period. The queue length at this period of the cycle will normally be the greatest experienced because during the green period the queue is being discharged at a rate which for practical purposes must be greater than the flow on the approach.
