TRL’s Signal Design Software for Network & Junctions
TRL Software are pleased to announce that TRANSYT 16 is now available to download. TRANSYT is a macroscopic simulation software package for designing, evaluating and modelling everything from single isolated road junctions to large mixed signal-controlled and priority control traffic networks. TRANSYT 16 offers a significant improvement on v15.
Key updates to TRANSYT 16 include (but are not limited to):
- Simulation mode
- Intermittent Stages
- Blocking Back
- Lane Starvation
- Uncoordinated Traffic Signals
- Modelling of Complex Signal Flares
- Faster “link-by-link” optimisation
- Dynamic Excel link for easy data capture
- ‘Run All Stage Sequences’ facility

Why use TRANSYT?
Signal timings at road junctions have an important effect on levels of traffic congestion, both at the junction itself and at surrounding junctions which may be signalised or priority-controlled. Ensuring traffic signals are timed effectively is one of the most cost-effective methods for reducing congestion.
TRANSYT is a comprehensive global product used for optimising traffic signals at single junctions and large traffic networks of mixed control. It is designed specifically to give quick solutions with minimal user input, and also more considered solutions when needed. TRANSYT modelling can feed into many processes – signal plans for fixed time signals; cableless linking facilities; SCOOT base timings; vehicle actuation maximum timings and for predicting the performance of the aforementioned.
What can TRANSYT model?
TRANSYT can model mixed networks of signalised and unsignalised junctions. Furthermore, when used in conjunction with a Junctions licence, it has the capability to predict the performance of priority junctions using standard ARCADY / PICADY geometric data.
