7.3.1

LINSIG V2 was selected to assess the impact of implementing options at individual
junctions. LINSIG is specifically designed to model isolated signalised junctions, so it was
used to assess the capacity of the junctions and provide the method of control for use in
other software packages, for example VISSIM.

7.3.2

To test the proposals, four LINSIG models were created:

02/017 Euston Road/Midland Road Junction

02/018 Euston Road/Pancras Road Junction

02/021 & 02/193 Euston Road/York Way/Gray’s Inn Road Junction

02/049 Caledonian Road/Pentonville Road Junction

7.3.3

The base models were built using the existing junction layout and method of control and
observed flows which were described in Chapter 3 of this report. As LINSIG lacks the

capability to model variable signal timings, fixed cycle times and stage sequences were
adopted in the models.

7.3.4

LINSIG has some limitations. The software assumes all traffic arrives uniformly and it
does not take into account the random nature of driver behaviour. Therefore VISSIM was
used in tandem with LINSIG in this study to examine the effects in more detail. VISSIM
models are described in Section 7.5 VISSIM Modelling.

7.3.5

The modelling layout for 02/017 Euston Road/Midland Road Junction is illustrated in
Figure 7.1 below.
