Substantiation of Communication Infrastructure Selection in Newly Developed Territories

Egidijus Skrodenis, Jūratė Venckauskaitė, Marija Burinskienė


The mobility need, especially of motorized, has significantly increased in recent decade, the public became more and more dependent on the means of communication. Transport became an inseparable part of the way of life of modern human being which helps to satisfy needs but creates new needs. With undoubted benefit these changes caused the new problems, such as traffic congestions, time losses or increased noise and pollution. These arguments made it necessary to look for new ways and means to get under control the existing communication system processes in the newly planned urban territories and to develop new innovative tasks for the EU urban communication systems in order to ensure effective and uninterrupted functioning of communication system and implementation of the main communication objectives. This scientific work analyzes the need for communication system in the newly developed territories, describes the world-wide software packages used for modelling of junctions, gives an illustrated example on how to select the type of intersection for the territory planned to be built-up in Molėtai city, describes advantages of the selected type of junction.
