2013 (English)In: Proceedings of the 16th International Conference Road Safety on Four Continents: Beijing, China. 15-17 May 2013, Linköping: Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut, 2013Conference paper (Other academic)
Emergency traffic organization under the circumstances of incidents is a very important technical aspect in incident management. It accelerates the speed of the highway administration department responding to a critical situation. It requires a good understanding of highway topology and incident situations. A good choice of traffic organization could result in saving many peoples’ lives. In this paper, methods of emergency traffic organization under the circumstances of incidents are studied. The demonstration includes the dividing of emergency responding areas and incident areas. The combine traffic organization for the Up-flow area and incident area in the case of completely interrupted flow or incompletely interrupted flow is described. In the end, Boshen Highway is used as an example to demonstrate how to apply these methods in the real practice.
