U-turn with high arrival rate and high traffic on urban road can decrease the Level of Service (LOS) of road itself. To revitalize the current condition, storage lane for vehicle queue must be provide. To set length of storage lane, we should know the queue length. Based on current condition, queue occurs because service time or turning movement is too long. The other factor of queue is high traffic on the opposite lane. Poisson distribution for arrival rate of vehicle on U-turn and model of service time of U-turn is used for this research. Model of service time is gained from cumulative frequency distribution of service time data from each U-turn. The result of simulation is queue length and the minimum length of storage lane On Pndugo U-turn, Nirwana U-turn, Galaxy U-turn which are 150 meter (correction factor:0.96s), 102 meter (correction factor: 0.85s), and 114 meter (correction factor: 0.95s), respectively. Simulation model is accepted when correction factor is close to 0s. Based on the result, the Simulation model of queue is accepted.
