Traffic study and flyover design for Burij Al-Sahwa roundabout using Building Information Modelling (BIM).
Keywords:Congestion, Bridge, Roundabout, BIM Software, Signals, flyover.
Due to the increase in the attraction of human activities and the increase in the rapid population growth into the urban region, which in turn leads to the growth of vehicle ownership, increase the daily trips and use which results in traffic congestion in the major roundabouts of the city. The aim of this project is analyzing the current situation of traffic in Burj Al-Sahwa roundabout using Building Information Modelling (BIM). Where, BIM software can conduct simulations and analysis to enhance the design for, cost-effective, energy-efficient, sustainable and practicable products as well as faster and more effective. In this project, traffic congestion in Burj Al-Sahwa roundabout, has been collected by using traditional through manual spot counting of vehicles, to evaluate roundabout performance.
The outcome of this project found that there is increasing in the traffic in the peak hour between 7 Am to 8 Am on Nizwa road. In that case, the suitable solutions to manage the traffic flow are the design of the flyover and design Signals in roundabout under the flyover.
