PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF SIGNALLED INTERSECTIONS ON MERANTI - SLAMET RIYADI ROAD, SAMARINDA CITY
Traffic bottlenecks are common in Samarinda, particularly during rush hour. This also occurred at the meranti road-slamet riyadi road crossing. Congestion at the Meranti Road-Slamet Riyadi Road crossroads is caused by numerous community activities like as educational institutions, stores, and services. So that events that produce congestion around the intersection occur during rush hours, causing delays in travel and community activities in the region. As a result, research is required to ascertain the operating parameters of the signalized crossings on Meranti Road and Slamet Riyadi Road in Samarinda City. Using MKJI 1997 and PTV Vissim methodologies, intersection performance analysis concluded. The highest degree of saturation value of 0.99 and the intersection delay of 35.32 seconds with service level D were found in the analysis results. In the meantime, service level C of Vissim's simulation yielded the highest delay of 27.67 seconds. Alternative 2, re-planning the signalized intersection geometry, is the recommended improvement alternative. As a result, the maximum degree of saturation is 0.82, and the average delay for all intersections is 20.14 seconds, with an intersection service level of C. According to the results of the intersection simulation using Vissim, the average intersection delay with service level B is 19.82 seconds.
