Many cities in developed countries are suffering from road traffic congestion and pollution caused by the rapid growth in private car use during the past twenty years. Thus, a growing market has developed for quality public transport systems, and light rail transit (LRT) systems, in particular, have been the source of considerable interest. A key design issue facing LRT planners and engineers is the LRT at-grade crossing at intersections. In consideration of the above, a simulation model, TRGMSM has been developed in the University of Southampton to analyze the interactions of at-grade operation of LRT and road vehicles at such intersections. This paper summarizes the main features of the simulation model.
