Abstract

Malaysia is one of the developing countries in the world. Currently, Malaysia is taking into a massive fast track development so is the change in traffic conditions in this country. The operating characteristics of this system are functionally dependent upon the amount of types of users that require services. This is especially true at that point where elements of the system come together that is the intersection. The Malaysian citizens like to have their own transport and creating typical travel behaviour compare with other countries. When traffic volumes increase or change their nature, it is usually the intersection that fust proves itself incapable of serving the added or altered demand. Consequently, congestion will increase during peak hours and causes delays. Therefore, signalised intersections are an important part of road system in Malaysia. The signalised intersection at Tarnan Tas has come to an alert for traffic engineers to come in and analysed the cause of delay and find a solution of ease the delays during the peak hour traffic. Hence, this study is made in order to analyse on the performances of the signalised intersection in terms of Level of Service and delays. After the study is made and the results of the Level of Service are obtained, an alternative solution is proposed in the data analysis to reconstruct the existing signalised intersection.
