Paper Title: Study of Motorcycle Traffic Stream Characteristics in Kathmandu Valley
Authors Name: Amit Kumar Shrestha

Abstract: This paper mainly presents motorcycle traffic stream characteristics of Kathmandu Valley. Traffic problems are common in city areas however the type and extent of problems are diverse in developed countries and developing countries. Most of the developed countries are facing four wheelers problems whereas developing countries are facing two wheelers problems. Though much knowledge about traffic characteristics was acknowledged, very little attention has been paid regarding motorcycle. This study will address a comprehensive analysis of motorcycle behavior and operation through videotaping of some roads that have significant motorcycle proportion. In this paper, three locations Old buspark to Bhadrakali (1), Shital Niwas to Maharajgunj (2), Kalimati to Tankeshwor (3) in Kathmandu Valley have been used to meet criteria for data collection mixed traffic, one way roadways and two way roadways. Traffic composition, Vehicle arrival modeling, Speed modeling and time headway modeling were developed. Speed flow relationship, speed density relationship and flow density relationship were developed for all locations, in which the adjustment factor for the present of vehicles other than motorcycle was based on motorcycle equivalent unit. Statistical analyses of the empirical data were utilized to demonstrate the characteristics of motorcycle speed, time headway regarding to traffic flow. The preliminary model was developed to relate the motorcycle lane capacity with lane width. The finding obtains from this study may be used to develop capacity and level of service model of motorcycle lane, design procedure of motorcycle lane, new procedures for Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), which adapt developing countries as well as provide the data needed to develop a motorcycle simulation model.
Keywords: Motorcycle traffic; Mixed traffic; Vehicle arrival modeling; Speed modeling; Headway modeling; Motorcycle lane; Speed – flow relationship; Traffic characteristics.
