The project deals with the design and safety of a new type of modern roundabouts with high potential for combining safety with high traffic capacity: turbo-roundabouts. The project purpose is to create the design manual for turbo-roundabouts in the Czech Republic, where the controversial aspects of winter maintenance and way markings will be taken into account. For the function and capacity verification of turbo-roundabouts the microscopic simulation will be used.
Methodology on design of turbo-roundabouts
Assessment of turbo-roundabouts in the Czech Republic - analysis of their use, capacity, traffic intensity, functionality, accidentality etc.
Roundabouts vs. traffic light intersections - expert paper
Simulation study of turbo-roundabouts - verified a different type of the turbo-roundabout (than the already used ones) and recommended locations and its use in the Czech Republic
