Planning, designing and operative analyses in traffic particularly comprise pedestrian flow analyses primarily from the aspect of safety and capacity. In addition to their orientation to the analysis of the pedestrian flow density, special attention has been paid to the empirical measurement of pedestrian speed across pedestrian crossings with traffic lights for the purpose of their protection while determining timing of the traffic lights lanterns. The aim of this paper is to determine the speed of pedestrian flows in the urban zone in terms of pedestrian speed, as well as the proposed Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) values for the given conditions. The results about the characteristics of pedestrian flows in the area of signalled pedestrian crossings in Doboj are presented in the paper. Detected speed value for men and women at three locations, on the analyzed sample of 627 measured speeds, is 1.254 m/s. Pedestrian speeds as random variables are governed by the law of normal distribution for given classes of measured values. The level of pedestrian flow services in Doboj based on the HCM manual has been rated as "C" level.

Key words: Pedestrain speed; LOS (Level Of Service); capacity; safety

Thematic field: Bezbjedniji učesnici u saobraćaju
