The bridge has a strong closure itself and such as the factors that the bridge is high above the ground, which makes it difficult to rescue after the traffic accident. Because of the complexity of the traffic situation, the terminal interchange is the traffic accident prone area. The frequent incidents of expressway bridges and terminal interchange have severely affected the expressway safety, which has becomes one of the bottleneck of the freeway safety. Based on the characteristics of vehicle operation on the Yaohu bridge from Nanchang to Zhangshu expressway and Houtian terminal interchange, this study researched service level and the vehicle running status in weaving section, and then put forward the people-oriented of traffic management strategies and improvement measures which would significantly improve the safety level of large Bridges road and traffic efficiency.
