TRAFFIC FLOW CHARACTERISTICS AND CONDITIONS ON RURAL STATE ROAD NETWORK OF REPUBLIC OF SERBIA
This paper includes general quantitative and qualitative analysis of road traffic demand changes on primary state road network in Republic of Serbia for the 1990 – 2016 period. Analyses of available traffic count data concentrate on primary rural network level demand changes, in other words Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) and Vehicle Kilometers changes and distribution. Transportation demand changes and seasonl variations on road sections of Pan European Transportation Corridor X (X, Xb and Xc), namely on motorway sections, in Serbia are further analyzed due to the fact that these sections are the trunk roads for long distance transit trips. The Ex-post analysis of the transport demand key factors with the aim of defining realistically achieved effects and the identification of variations in time dynamics was conducted for Corridor X. Present transport demand analyses together with supply analyses of present condition of primary state rural road network are the basis for overall transport supply appreciation (Volume to Capacity Ratio and Level of Service estimates). They form the basis for general conclusions definition and recommendations for future activities on network level.
