Nearly every town faces traffic problem caused by continuously increase of traffic. Traffic collapses, congestions, accidents and a further negative impact on the environment are gradually becoming a common part of our lives. Junctions are the most critical points of the road network, which usually determine the capacity of the roads. Therefore, proper traffic organization at junctions is a necessity. This paper analyses actuated control in comparison to fixed control at signal-controlled junction. There is also case study of one problematic junction in this paper. With the help of microscopic simulation in Aimsun there are assessed 2 solution of this problematic junction, one of which is fixed control and other is actuated control. Actuated traffic control gives better results than fixed control.
