Performance Analysis of a Network of Dual-Lane Roundabouts

Modern roundabouts have become a subject of great interest and attention over the last few years. Compared to regular signalized intersections, roundabouts have the potential to reduce vehicular delay & emissions and increase safety. The objectives of this study is to conduct an in depth analysis to examine the short and long term benefits of roundabouts from a multi modal perspective. Using real observed data from vehicular traffic, pedestrians, cyclists and transit vehicles and complimenting it with microsimulation data, this research will assess the delay, environmental and safety impacts associated with all the stages of the roundabout life. The 2 industrial partners in this research are: Alberta Motor Association (AMA) and ISL Engineering. AMA is always keen to focus on research on the safety perspective of new innovative transportation solution. TO BE CONT'D
