take account of local operating conditions at overloaded Q 21 existing sites. Also, the following form of the equation has been proposed: e - v +252 ] Iei_vi (Si + = 1.11F-f Q e C C (303 - 0.042 tD This equation allows the prediction of the effect on capacity of a change in the geometric parameters from S 1 , e and to S 2 , e 2 and 2 S 1 and S 2 are the initial and final values of the sharpness of flare. In 1982, Sernmens extended the unified formula to cover grade-separated roundabouts. The modified formula suggested was - (eq.2.21) where all parameters have the same significance as for the unified formula. 27 Official Design ormulae in Britain Wardrop's formula was the official design formula for conventional layouts until 1975. The formula, as given in "Layout of Roads in Rural Areas" C4inistry of Transport, 1968), is the following: - 282w(1 + e/w) (1 -p13) Q - 1+w/.Q (eq. 2. 22) which is the practical capacity, = 80% m' where is the maximum theoretical capacity; e, w and 2. are in metres. The above value of Q was corrected depending on various layout characteristics, eg gradient and angles of entry or exit. The above formula was not amended until i975. After (eq.2.2C

22 the priority rule was introduced various researchers, mentioned in section 2.4, demonstrated that Wardrop's formula was no longer applicable. This led to the publication of an interim design formula for conventional roundabouts until a new compre- hensive one was developed. Technical Memorandum H2/75, (Department of the Environment, 1975), included both this interim formula and one introduced previously for use with the new layouts with small islands and flared entries. H2/75 defined the following types of roundabouts: (a) Conventional: a roundabout having an one=way carriage- way, which may be composed of weaving sections, around a circular or asymmetrical central island and normally without flared entries. (b) Small: a roundabout having an one-way circulatory carriageway around a central island 4 metres or more in diameter, and with flared approaches. (c) Mini: a roundabout having an one-way circulatory carriageway around a flush or slightly raised circular marking less than 4 metres in diameter, with or without flared entries. (d) Double: an individual junction with two small or mini roundabouts either contiguous or connected by a short link road. (e) Multiple: an individual junction with three or more small or mini roundabouts either contiguous or interconnected by short link roads. (f) Ring Junctions: a junction having a two-way circu- latory carriageway around a central island linking mini- roundabouts at the mouth of each entry to the junction.
