The R44 is a major four lane divided arterial route linking Somerset West on the outskirts of Cape Town to the nearby town of Stellenbosch. Daily traffic volumes have increased exponentially from some 5,000 vehicles per day in 1975 to 30,000 vehicles per day in 2015.

INTRODUCTION

Design of Right Turn Lanes

This paper provides an expansion and explanation of the presentation of the "Design of Right-Turn Lanes" presented in Session 619 of the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board. The paper addresses the operational issues and the design of right-turn lanes. As indicated in the paper, many issues relating to right-turn lanes are the same as for left-turn lanes. Deceleration rates reported in NCHRP Report 780 for left-turns are reasonably consistent with those previously assumed. The rationale for taper length as opposed to taper ratio is discussed.

Access Program Framework

Internationally, an access management program framework will vary by type of government, culture and established preferences in roadway design and traffic engineering. Mr. Demosthenes will use personal experiences from the USA, Greece, and Dubai and Abu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates (U.AE.) to present and discuss some universal access management issues and principles for agency programs.

Influence of Road Cross Section on Access Spacing

Click here if you liked this information

This report presents a study on the influences of select cross-sectional-related design elements (specifically median configurations and bicycle 
lanes) and their impact on crash severity and type, as well as the associated driver gap acceptance for turning maneuvers at midblock driveway 
locations on urban arterials. The primary goal of this proposed research is to better understand how the median and bicycle lane configurations 
can influence safety and operations at driveway locations.
