ABSTRACT

The arterial roads in tourism areas show a lack of control over activities that occur on the arterial roadsides. This study constructs a speed-flow behavior model to analyze the influence of side friction events under mixed traffic flows on arterial road performances in Bali. This event is dominated by the entry and exit of vehicles from road access points. The study results show that in friction conditions, the speed of the motorcycle is significantly affected by the presence and speed of other motorcycles and light vehicles, but in base conditions, it is significantly affected by the presence and speed of all types of vehicles. Meanwhile, the speed of light vehicles is significantly influenced by the presence and speed of motorcycles and other light vehicles. A further study is required to analyze the influence of motorized vehicles on the selection of heavy vehicle speed on arterial roads. Due to side frictions, a decrease in road capacity (pcu/hour) was found between 14.37% and 26.60% while a decrease in speed was between 13.79% and 76.19%. These show a significant side friction problem on arterial roads in tourism areas. The road control policy, particularly on roadside access is needed for these arterial roads.
