Abstract EN

The quality of the geometric design of the road network shall be enhanced when a new access management is applied to get the most optimized route that may be chosen by the road user.

Herein Utaifeyah district in Baghdad City is selected, transportation network map is generated for the area, points of problems or incidents like traffic congestion points are located and taken into consideration.

The work includes data collection of the traffic volumes within the network from the study area, and then applying optimization study for the alternatives that uses microscopic traffic simulation.

The results shows that when the access management scenarios were proposed, and the corridor analysis of the related transportation network was applied, the quality of transportation style of the Utaifeya district shall be improved, the access ratio to the district has increased to 216%, and the emissions of the harmful matters from vehicles have been decreased by 30%.
