Abstract

The transport system is an important part in human activity and is an integral part of the successful functioning of an urbanized territory. The historical relationship between the size of the city and the development of urban transport is traced very well. With the growth of the city's population and its territory, there is an increase in vehicles and traffic volume. The mobility of the population is increasing (the average number of transport trips per resident per year), while the travel distance is also increasing. This requires the appropriate development of transport, increasing traffic speed, and increasing the capacity of the road network. The article is devoted to environmental problems of motor transport in small cities, where it is impossible to apply large and expensive solutions. Two problematic intersections in similar cities were considered in Apatity and Elabuga and measures for the reconstruction of these sections were proposed (applying adequate road markings and changing traffic lights modes). Performing a computer experiment on constructed simulation models showed that there is a significant potential for improving the parameters of traffic flow in these areas and reducing the negative impact on the environment.
