Abstract:

In the present study, quantification of level of service for four-lane divided highway has been performed by using simulation technique. For the purpose, three operational service measures are proposed in the study namely traffic stream speed and platoon parameters like average platoon size and percentage following. The criteria or range for each measure to define particular LOS has been compared with criteria in Highway capacity manual (HCM) and reviewed literature. The significant difference in criteriawasobserved due to frequent lane change and undefined lateral behavior of the traffic on multilane highways. Sucha realistic Indian traffic scenario on multilane highway has been modeled and studied through micro-simulation tool ‘PASSIM’ developed by the authors. The study has been carried on particular section of uninterrupted flow facility which is designated here as ‘Rurban’ highway hasdistinctly identified between rural highway and urban roads in terms of prevailing traffic condition and driver behavior. The result presented in the form of proposed LOS stratification table based on both quantitative and qualitative operational service measures which practically and indirectly represent road user perceptions too.
