4. Which one of the following is the empirical formula to find the capacity of the weaving section?
a) Qw = (280w(1+e/w)(1-p/3))/(1+w/l)
b) Qw = (280w(1+e/w)(1-p/3))/(1-w/l)
c) Qw = (280w(1-e/w)(1-p/3))/(1+w/l)
d) Qw = (280w(1+e/w)(1*p/3))/(1+w/l)
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Qw = (280w(1+e/w)(1-p/3))/(1+w/l) is the empirical formula to find the capacity of the weaving section. Here, Qw = capacity of weaving section, w = weaving width, l = length of weaving, p = proportion of weaving traffic to the non-weaving traffic.

5. The capacity formula is valid only if the weaving width is between _______
a) 6 and 18 metres
b) 1 and 10 metres
c) 3 and 9 metres
d) 4 and 14 metres
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: The capacity formula is valid only if the weaving width is between 6 and 18 metres.

6. What are the upper limit and the lower limit of the traffic volume for the installation of a traffic rotary?
a) 3000 and 500 vehicles per hour
b) 5000 and 500 vehicles per hour
c) 6000 and 500 vehicles per hour
d) 3000 and 1000 vehicles per hour
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: The upper limit and the lower limit of the traffic volume for the installation of a traffic rotary is 3000 and 500 vehicles per hour. Not every location is suitable for a rotary. Rotaries are also suitable when the traffic entering from all the four approaches are comparatively equal.
