Fuel Station Capacity on Major Arterial Road in Thailand: A Case Study in Chonburi Province, Thailand

Supornchai Utainarumol and Surachai Ampawasuvan
Abstract—Fuel Service Station is an important activity that is located along the side arterial road with traffic a lot of throughout all the day. However, traffic volume entrance more than fuel station capacity, and then generate queue length on Main Street. The cause traffic jams at the entrance – exit fuel station on Main Street. That is reason studied behavior of fuel station capacity, and that does not cause queuing spill out onto the main street to cause traffic impact problems. This analysis important third variables include number of dispenser, parking space and queue length from setback right of way to dispenser. This studied by queuing micro-simulation, polynomial regression and linear regression, which found number of dispenser is affect important variable with capacity of fuel station. The parking space variable is moderate affect capacity of gasoline station, that difference of Liquid petroleum gas station. There have queue length affect moderate variable with capacity of fuel station. These results led to the better traffic management planning within the fuel station area by type of fuel station.

Index Terms—Fuel station, queue length, arterial road.
