The Correction Model of Webster Method for Intersection Delay


Article Preview

Intersection delay, an important indicator of traffic control, is often calculated by the Webster formula nowadays. This study investigated and analyzed the delay of several intersections in Jinan using the principal component analysis to identify the impact factors of the delay. Statistical analysis was used by MATLAB to build the correction model of Webster formula for intersection delay.
