Passing Sight Distance (PSD)

The passing sight distance is the minimum sight distance required on a two-lane,

two way highway that will permit a driver to complete a passing maneuver without

colliding with an opposing vehicle and without cutting off the passed vehicle.

EXAMPLE 1

You are asked to design a horizontal curve for a twolane road . The road has 3.65m lanes . Due to

expensive excavation, it is determined that a

maximum of 10.4 m can be cleared from the road's

centerline toward the inside lane to provide for

stopping sight distance . Also, local guidelines dictate

a maximum superelevation of 0 .08 m/m . What is the

highest possible design speed for this curve ?

From table 3.1 at SSD =105 m calculate speed V= 70 km/h

2016

EXAMPLE 1

22

ok

From table 3.1 at SSD =130 m calculate speed V= 80 km/h

this is larger than 8.57m, so design speed is too high

so 70 km/h is the maximum design speed

centerline to centerline of first lane is 3 m+1.5 m

A new interstate highway is being built with a design speed of 110 km/h . For one

of the horizontal curves, the radius (measured to the innermost vehicle path) is

tentatively planned as 275 m . What rate of superelevation is required for this

curve?

f= 0 .11 from table 3.5

EXAMPLE 6

30

A horizontal curve on a single-lane freeway ramp is 122 m long, and the design speed of

the ramp is 70 km/h . If the superelevation is 10% and the station of the PC is 17 + 35,

what is the station of the PI and how much distance must be cleared from the center of the

lane to provide adequate stopping sight distance ?

station of the PC = 17 + 35

superelevation e = 10%

calculate cleared distance Mv

since the stopping sight distance SSD=105m from

table 3.1 is less than ramp long

since the ramp is single-lane, R=Rv

A horizontal curve with a radius of 245 m connects the tangents of a two-lane highway that has a

posted speed limit of 60 km/h. If the highway curve is not superelevated, , determine the

horizontal sightline offset that a large billboard can be placed from the centerline of the inside

lane of the curve, without reducing the required SSD. Perception-reaction time is 2.5 sec, and f=

0.35.

Design speed = 60 km/h =16.7 m/s f= 0.35.

EXAMPLE 10

36

lane 7.3 m single carriageway road has a horizontal curve of radius of 600 m. If the

minimum sight stopping distance required is 160 m, calculate in metres the required

distance to be kept clear of obstructions if the length of the curve is:

(a) 200 m;

(b) 100 m.

(a) The length of the curve 200 m > 160 m. So the required sight distance S lies

wholly within the length of the curve.

(b) The length of the curve 100 m < 160 m. So the required sight distance S lies

outside the length of the curve. Applying equation (4.9), the required offset

EXAMPLE 11

37

Calculate the safe stopping for design speed of 50 kmph for (a)two way traffic on a

two lane road (b) two-way traffic on a single lane road.? Assume coefficient of

friction as 0.37 and reaction time of driver as 2.5 sec

SSD = 0.278vt + (v/254f)

= 0.278*50*2.5 + (50/254*0.37)

=61.4m

Stopping sight distance when there are two lanes= stopping distance= 61.4m

Stopping sight distance with single lane= 2*64.1 =122.8m

2016

EXAMPLE 12

38

collision of two cars approaching from the opposite direction at 90 and

60 kmph. Assume a reaction time of 2.5 sec, coefficient of friction of 0.7

and brake efficiency 50%?

f= 0.5*0.7 = 0.35

Stopping sight distance for first car, SD1=

0.278vt + (V/254f)

= 0.278*90*2.5 +(90/(254*0.35))

=153.6m

For second car, SD2= 0.278vt + (V/254f)

= 0.278*60*2.5 + (60/(254*0.35))

=82.2m

approaching cars = SD1+SD2

= 153.2+82.2

=235.4m
