Planning and countermeasures at exposed pedestrian crossings in Jamaica: a minor field study
2001 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The road safety situation for pedestrian and children is of great concern in Jamaica. One third of all fatalities on the Jamaican roads are pedestrians and 30% of those are children under 14 years of age. The improvements of the road safety situation should be done by applying low-cost engineering methods. The task for this thesis has been to improve the road safety situation for pedestrians and children by analysing the traffic situation and propose countermeasures at three signalised intersections at Halfway Tree Road and at sites in the vicinity of Halfway Tree Primary School. The sites have been studied by visual inspection, behaviour studies, speed measuring and traffic counts. After studying of adequate literature a catalogue of counter measures was done. From this catalogue the proposed counter measures for the sites were selected. To be able to choose cost-effective countermeasures a cost effectiveness analysis was performed. The method and countermeasures have been evaluated.
