Kingston University LondonFaculty of Science, Engineering and ComputingSchool of Natural and Built EnvironmentsDepartment of Civil Engineering2016/7TRAFFIC COURSEWORK (CE6012)The aim of the coursework is to analyse an existing T junction and propose a new design which would accommodate the increased traffic.This coursework is to be carried out in pairs. The report should include:- An introduction: aim of the Traffic Assessment (refer to the National PlanningPolicy Framework); photo of the group collecting the data;- Information about the traffic survey, type of survey and obtained results. Explain the use of PCUs;- Location, diagram and picture of the junction being considered and general information about the traffic flow on the major arm and minor arm;15 marks- Using the survey data collected and Junctions 8 prove that the junction works. Comment on the results (LOS, type of traffic flow, etc);- Manipulate the data, with a rationale (i.e. the impact of a new development on the local traffic; generated and attracted trips), to make the junction fail. Assume a growth factor between 1 and 2. Comment on the results (LOS, type of traffic flow, etc);20 marks- Produce a viable solution, i.e. a roundabout design, drawn up using Vehicle tracking (AutoCAD);Show the LOS of the 3 arms (attach A3 drawings with all relevant technical information: geometry, visibility, entry path curvature);20 marks- Prove that the LOS of the proposed upgrade is satisfactory. Use the ‘Refreshdata link’ icon to generate the Vehicle tracking roundabout into Junctions 8 and analyse it using the increased traffic data; 25 marksCheck that an articulated lorry (British, FTA 1998 16.5m) can maneuver round the roundabout by carrying out a swept path analysis (attach A3 drawing);Discuss the workability of the solution; 20 marksAll Figures (diagrams/photos), tables and appendices need to be given a number, a caption and a citation where appropriate and all AutoCAD drawings with title boxes are to be folded to A4 size References should be cited and listed using Harvard style;Report should be word processed with a maximum of 3000 words excluding diagrams and references.
