Queues occurring at toll stations cause significant traffic flow disruption. To alleviate this problem, the knowledge of the relationship between traffic flow, number of open tollbooths and vehicle time in system is essential.
This paper presents a research related to the simulation of queues at toll stations. A computer program, written in Turbo Pascal, simulates the behaviour of the system enabling the determination and investigation of the mentioned relationship. Two applications of the proposed model are also exhibited.
