Effecten van benutting - december 2018

Het is al weer een tijdje geleden dat het overzicht van de effecten van benutting is bijgewerkt. Dit overzicht bestaat sinds 2008 en de resultaten van (bijna) alle uitgevoerde evaluatiestudies in Nederland zijn daarin opgenomen. Het is een belangrijke bron van kennis van effecten en is nuttig voor het afwegen van alternatieven. Aan het overzicht van mei 2015 (versie 3.3) zijn de resultaten van 20 studies toegevoegd, zodat het inmiddels bestaat uit 210 evaluatiestudies. Welke dat zijn, is te vinden in de literatuurlijst. De resultaten zelf zijn zoals gebruikelijk opgenomen in een overzichtspresentatie.

Dynamic Traffic Management Amsterdam

Artikel_Wegen_DVM

In recent years experiments have been conducted within the Pratical Trial Traffic Management Amsterdam with connecting and coordinating road sides systems and with the interaction with individual vehicles. Amsterdam has always been on the forefront of traffic management developments. This was confirmed with an article that was brought to our attention. This article (in Dutch) of author Joost van der Valk ('Roads' magazine, no. 9, October 1994) describes how Rijkswaterstaat applied traffic management in the region of Amsterdam.

 

Study tour Austria-Switzerland

From May 31st to June 5th, 2015 members of TrafficQuest (the Centre for Expertise on TrafficManagement) visited Austria and Switzerland for a study tour to learn how regions and cities dealt with (urban) traffic management and to see how these approaches could be used for the Dutch situation. The main question for this study tour was: How should the regions and cities handle the growth in traffic flows, both in normal situations and in situations where something special is going on? To answer this question, in five days four organisations that are busy with traffic management were visited in Austria and Switzerland: road authorities, manufacturer and a knowledge institute. The document "Study tour Austria – Switzerland: May 31 – June 5, 2015" contains a report of this trip and the lessons learned.

Flexible lane configuration for intersections

The application of flexible lane configuration for signalised intersections is sometimes beneficial for traffic delays, but sometimes not. This is the conclusion of the research conducted by Frank Anema and supported by TrafficQuest. He did his master thesis on this topic and received his MSc degree with the report entitled “Model-predictive control of the lane configuration at signalized intersections”.

 

Flexible lane configuration

At this moment there are five intersections in the Netherlands with a flexible lane configuration. This means that during a certain period of the day an extra lane is available for a busy movement on an intersection and the same lane is available for another movement during the rest of the day.

 

Impacts of traffic management (May 2015)

Since 2008 an overview exists in which the results of (almost) all assessment studies for traffic management in The Netherlands are summarised. This is an important source of knowledge related to impacts of traffic management and is useful for policy and operations. TrafficQuest has updated this overview with the latest results and it contains now the research of 190 reports. The references of these reports are given in the de reference list. As usual, the number are contained in tables, given in this overview. Both are in Dutch.
