Abstract

A U-turning movement is a driving technique where the driver performs a 180 degree turn to reverse the direction of travel on a highway. Some highways in Malaysia such as multilane highways provide U-turn facilities. U-turn facilities is usually provided in areas with high population density such as residential and commercial areas. The ulterior goal of providing U-turn facilities is to allow change in direction of travel with minimal impact on traffic conflict points and congestion. U-turn facilities are preferred over conventional signalised intersections due to its more desirable traffic performance [1].
