When outlining designated transit areas, safety is of primary importance. Because of that, when intersections are being planned, the methodology has to be based on the characteristics of everyday road user behaviour. Technical specifications also have to be considered and implemented in such a way that the user is safely guided through the crossroads as well as being warned of any possible dangers.
The intersection debated in the diploma thesis is situated outside a densely populated area so there is no shortage of space. The junction is consequently designed very freely. This means that the flow of traffic and the changing of lanes is disordered. The open nature of the crossroads also contributes to the speed limits being frequently exceeded. All of this being considered, the safety of every traffic
participant is therefore hindered.
In the next part of the thesis two different possible intersection regimes are presented taking into account the current state of the junction - the first being the channelization of the crossroads and the second the construction of a roundabout. Both possibilities are discussed from a constructional and traffic perspective.
