Abstract

Sustainable development of road infrastructure has been the most discussed issue in Slovakia in few last years. Mainly in bigger cities road infrastructure is overloaded and ceases to satisfy the needs of road users. There is many possibilities how to solve this issue. We can build new roads and connections between points of interest (origin and destination) but this solution is not acceptable in every area of Slovakia because of lack of space and environment protection as well as financing. Solution, that is more suitable, is to use intelligent transport systems and try to reorganizing some transport routes in the most overloaded sections. We have used software Aimsun to simulate new traffic conditions and evaluate their effects on traffic situation. In our contribution, we focused on difficult traffic situation in the city of Lučenec. We made a microscopic simulation and compared a current state and a new traffic organization using software Aimsun.
