Abstract


Traffic congestion caused by traffic volume close to road capacity, where the service level can
be seen from the degree of saturation, ie DS = V / C. Ideally the value of V / C ≤ 0.75. From visual
observations the author, in Palu has frequent traffic congestion especially at peak hours on a
particular road segment. One reason is the high vehicle growth is not matched by growth in
road infrastructure. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the performance of the street
between two signalized intersections in the city of Palu to determine the causes and find
solutions solving traffic congestion.
The survey will be conducted to obtain primary data and secondary data analysis required in
the performance of such road traffic data, data geometric road side barriers, interviews with
passengers and motorists. The study was conducted for 4 days at 06:00 to 22:00 with the
assumption that the traffic data coverage is 93%.
This paper recommends a treatment that is optimized bersinyal roads by managing the
intersections along the road segment between intersections with traffic cut off by installing a
signal light and each intersection there is an alternative to motorists to avoid congestion, after
allowing back off to prevent the flow of traffic queues length.
