Abstract

A high number of accidents in railway level crossing causes loss of life and material. Furthermore, the losses are also experienced by users of traffic on the highway such as disturbance in the form of delay which can lead to increase the length of travel time where the vehicle will stop, and give impact to the emergency queue vehicle at railway level crossing. Considering those problems, there has been build two models which are: the first model is the queuing of traffic length and with considering the length and speed of the train, and the second model is the queuing of traffic with considering the gate closing time. The methodology applied was an observation on field and survey data and then calculation from Road Capacity Guidelines of Indonesia (PKJI 2014) and queue length calculation using the queuing analysis method. Data have been collected and analysed by making the model relationship using linear regression method. The result showed that there is a positive relationship between the train lengths with the duration of gate closing time. However, the train speed has a negative relationship. Moreover, the length of the train has a positive relationship with the length of the vehicle queue.
