Abstract [en]

This paper presents an investigation of capacity reduction in connection with roadwork. The paper presents a state-of-the-art description on roadwork effects on capacity. The state-of-the art has been used to develop a model for estimation of capacity reduction at roadwork zone on Swedish roads. The model has partly been validated with empirical data from a full scale test at the freeway network in Gothenburg.

The studies presented in the literature shows that capacity differs not only between different roadwork designs but also between roadwork with similar design. Thus, one can conclude that there is a high variation between the roadwork zone due to effects of surrounding elements, such as the type of work and external effects such as rain (which affects the capacity even under normal conditions). The differences that exist in the estimation of capacity for motorway sections next to a roadwork zone can be said to consist of four situation-specific variables:

  • the percentage of heavy vehicles
  • type of road
  • the width of the remaining lanes
  • diversion of traffic to the opposite carriageway

The conclusion from the literature review is that the most important parameters that should be incorporated in a Swedish capacity manual for the operation and maintenance of roadwork are:

  • the proportion of heavy traffic
  • lane width, type of roadwork
  • number of closed lanes
  • closed road shoulder
  • proportion of commuter traffic
  • length of roadwork zone.

The paper presents a comparison between the Dutch model for computation of capacity reduction and a composite model of reduction factors from Germany, USA and Denmark. The comparison show that the two models essentially gives the same results. Based on these results a new model was developed. In the developed model, the capacity for the remaining lane is calculated.
