Paramics modelling of congested offset T-intersection

Problem definition

The scenario is a signalised staggered T intersection that is congested. The queue space between adjacent T intersections is filling up. There are also significant queues on the side streets.


  • Use modelling software appropriate for the task
    • Don’t use what you’ve got when it’s not appropriate
    • Engage others when required
  • Be aware of the limitations of different software packages
    • Avoid a ‘black box’ approach
