Abstract
This study deals with Turbo-Roundabout of Special-Roundabouts. Recently, many rotary intersections are being constructed in Korea, but the effect of the rotary intersection depends on the total entrance traffic volume and the area of the paper. The purpose of this study is to analyze the operation and accident reduction effect of turning traffic signal intersection with small traffic volume into turbo - type turning intersection. The main results are as follows. First, when the traffic volume of the main road is high, the traffic volume of the subway is less than 10 ~ 15%, or when the left turn ratio is less than 30%, it is improved when switching to the turbo type turn intersection instead of the first turn type and second turn type turn intersection Was analyzed. Second, it is considered that turbo type rotary intersection is more effective than first - type rotary intersection, and it is more effective in increasing road capacity because the area of paper is smaller than that of second - order rotary intersection. Third, the number of traffic accidents decreased by 45.9% and the number of injured persons decreased by 76.5% after the conversion of the turnover type turnover to turbo type. 100%), the number of car accidents was 0.3, and the number of casualties was 0 (100%). Finally, the positive evaluation of the user satisfaction survey showed that the improvement in safety, accessibility, and convenience was improved by 60.4%, which was improved by 16.4% to 76.8% after the conversion to the turbo type turnover.
이 연구는 특수형 회전교차로 중 터보형 회전교차로를 다루고 있다. 최근 많은 회전교차로가 국내에 건설되고 있으나, 회전교차로의 효과는 총 진입교통량과 용지면적에 달려 있다. 이 연구의 목적은 부도로 교통량이 매우 작은 신호교차로를 터보형 회전교차로로 전환함에 따른 운영 및 사고감소 효과를 분석하는데 있다. 주요 연구결과는 다음과 같다. 첫째, 주도로의 교통량 비율이 높고, 부도로의 교통량이 10~15% 이하인 경우나 좌회전 비율이 30% 이하로 적을 경우 1차로형 및 2차로형 회전교차로 보다는 터보형 회전교차로로 전환할 경우 개선효과가 있는 것으로 분석되었다. 둘째, 1차로형 회전교차로에 비해 터보형 회전교차로는 지체감소효과가 매우 높고, 2차로형 회전교차로에 비해 용지 면적이 적어 도로용량의 증대에도 더욱 효율적인 것으로 판단된다. 셋째, 터보형 회전교차로 전환설치 후 교통사고 건수는 45.9%, 부상자수는 76.5%가 감소하였고, 사고유형별로 차대사람 사고가 2.3명에서 2명(14.3%), 차대차 사고가 14.3명에서 0명(100%), 차량단독 사고가 0.3명에서 사상자가 0명(100%)으로 분석되었다. 마지막으로 이용자 만족도 조사 결과 긍정적인 평가는 60.4%에서 터보형 회전교차로 전환설치 후 76.8%로 약 16.4%가 향상되어 안전성, 접근성, 편의성 등에 대한 개선효과가 높은 것으로 분석되었다.
