  • Abstract

    Increasing the intensity of transport traffic, changing in restructuring and high-speed modes of transport flows more stringent requirements for controls and traffic management impose to ensure the necessary level of efficiency and safety of the transport traffic. To resolve this problem, it is necessary to build road network optimal in length, density and on transport performance indicators. Aim: The aim of the study is to evaluate the workload and analysis of capacity of the road network of modern regional center. Materials and Methods: All studies and calculations in paper, the authors conducted on the example of the road network of the Primorsky district of Odessa (Ukraine). Few streets that are transit arteries of the historic center were chosen to assess the road network capacity. On these streets the movement to the main passenger and transport creating unit – Railway Station is happening. To assess the capacity of the considered road network the methods of field observations were used, because they are based on direct measurements of traffic characteristics in different parts of the road network. Results: The study gave an objective picture of important correspondences. An assessment of degree of loading the considered road network was made; for that the capacity of multilane roadway was calculated. Analysis of the data showed that the state of traffic in the study area is densely saturated. It was made the recommendation for improvement of traffic of modern regional center.
