To accommodate truck traffic, turn radii shall be 15 meters minimum. (ii) The edges of traffic lanes should be clearly indicated by road markings. The operation of the junction depends principally upon the frequency of gaps that naturally occur between vehicles in the main road flow. These gaps should be of sufficient duration to permit vehicles from the minor road to merge with, or cross, the major road flow. In consequence junctions are limited in capacity, but this capacity may be optimized by, for example, canalization or the separation of maneuvers. 12.3 Selection of Junction Type
