ABSTRACT
The Autopista Norte Highway is a continuous traffic artery way in Bogota city. According to “ Mobility Secretary”, this main road could reach a traffic about eighteen thousand vehicles. On the urban sector the intersections with secondary roads exposes various particularities. The presence of reducing lanes, traffic lights and return ways near the intersection and considerable length of “orejas de manzana”, could affected the vehicle traffic flow. As a consequence, could rises the time required to allow the vehicle to move right, left and straight in the respective intersections. Therefore, the delay time phenomenon invites to planning new developments that could increase flow traffic performance in the respective vehicles movements: right, left and straight in the intersections. As result, it would reduce the time that the vehicles could spend in the intersections, especially at peak hour.
