Analysis Urban transport line N-4 [Matiqan - Gërmi], in Prishtina

Session

Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment

Description

The urban transport system in Prishtina faces many shortcomings; hence it is very urgent for this service to receive proper attention especially in road infrastructure. Therefore, this paper analyzes potential improvement sections of the infrastructure elements of line number 4 which connects two suburban parts of Prishtina [Matiqan and Gërmia]. A number of issues have been identified including the crossroad between the Isa Kastrati Street and Xheladin Hana, a crossroads which, from the field analysis, is out of engineering standards [turning radius, width ...], and does not meet the conditions for the development of urban transport. For traffic safety and proper functioning of bus traffic various propositions have been presented which include; redesigning the crossing platforms with the cabin which differs from the pedestrian movement path, adjusting the seats for passengers to increase the capacity of the seats, increasing the maintenance capacities of stops and more.
