Abstract

Traffic volume that exceeds the existing road capacity occurs on Jalan Piet A. Tallo during peak hours condition. Congestion often occurs in the mornings and evenings. In addition, there is a merging of the 4/2T road segment into 2/2TT which results in a buildup of traffic flow at that point so that some vehicles have to move outside the body of the road. This illustrates that the traffic flow and capacity of this road section are not proportional to the traffic volume at peak hours. Analysis of the capacity and performance of roads is based on the PKJI 2014. The results show that the performance of Jalan Piet A. Tallo Kupang in current conditions is heavily loaded because it exceeds the capacity of the road so that a queue of vehicles moves and stops alternately
