This project will develop a pilot model that utilises secondary datasets (e.g. signal timing data) within Main Roads Western Australia to estimate overall delay at intersections in real-time.
Real-time information, especially delay time at intersections, is valuable for traffic operations but is not readily available and costly to procure. Existing data sources that Main Roads has access to do not currently provide this information at a useful level of accuracy.
Such a model would allow Main Roads to determine the delay at a network, intersection, or at an approach level, while not requiring any additional sensor equipment or expensive data licensing agreements. It would inform decisions relating to network operational strategies and road project development.
