Abstract

Pedestrian crossing is one of the greatest challenges for the traffic and safety engineering communities. Lack of facilities for pedestrian caused fatal accidents involving pedestrians especially at intersections where there is high volume of vehicles. Many major roads in Malaysia are ignoring the facilities for pedestrian to cross the road. Therefore, many pedestrians risk their live to cross the roads even though they knew the danger and risk they have to take. Concerning pedestrian fatality at intersection, nowadays a lot of facilities for pedestrians have been provided in order to increase the safety of pedestrian at signalized intersection. These include the pedestrian crossing lane, traffic system for pedestrians and provided safe place for pedestrian to cross the road. By adding facilities at traffic light signal, the delays for vehicle will be higher and this can caused heavy congestion. On the other hand, if the delays time for pedestrian is high, the possibility of non-compliance pedestrian will increase. This project studied the characteristic of the pedestrians in term of delays and compliancy at two selected signalized intersections. Traffic survey was conducted to study the performance of the traffic signal with the existence of pedestrian facilities at the two intersections selected. Two types of traffic signal for pedestrians were used namely pushbutton system which located at Jalan Sultan Yusuf and fixed-time system which located at Jalan Dato Onn Jaafar- Jalan Sultan Idris Shah. The performance of the road as well as performance of pedestrian crossing was analyzed using SIDRA software. Finally, recommendations on how to improve the intersection were proposed. The average walking speed for pedestrian is 1. 6 m/s for free-flow walking. The average walking speed is 1.28 m/s and 1.56 m/s for both traffic systems. It can be concluded that the average walking speed at the intersections is quite normal. Non-compliance pedestrians at the intersection are quite low at both sites. For Jalan Sultan Yusuf, the LOS for pedestrian is B while for vehicle is D. For Jalan Dato Onn Jaafar- Jalan Sultan Yusuf the LOS for pedestrian and vehicle is B and D, respectively.
