Abstract

A significant and often problematic part of a local road, while solving the traffic within the city area, is the capacity of the local roads. Capacity of a local road can be defined as the maximum number of vehicles that can pass per unit of time by a pursued rust, strip or lane of local road under the favorable driving conditions. The article is aimed on analysis of the current situation of local roads with the case study in the city of Košice. The analysis will be carried out mainly in the terms of capacity of local roads. The solution may be a modification of the duration of green waves, modification of the number of traffic lanes and where appropriate adjusting the surrounding of the road, meaning a modification of organization and management of traffic in adjacent and follow-up roads.

Keywords: city logistics, urban roads, traffic flow, traffic intensity
