Whether the intersections of the tramway are closed have a very significant influence on the operating efficiency of trams and vehicles. How to coordinate the right-of-way relationship between trams and vehicles is of vital importance improving the overall traffic efficiency of the corresponding intersection. Based on the historical data of the intersections along Hunnan Modern Tram No. 5 line, we studied the relationship between the ratio of traffic flow to non-winding traffic flow and the delay. A single-factor analysis of the applicability of closed conditions of the intersections was carried out by simulation, and the optimal applicability conditions were achieved. The conclusions of this study provide a scientific basis for intersection signal timing optimization of the tramway and traffic system.
