This paper deals with traffic characteristics and delay at urban railroad crossings. It is well recognized that railroad crossings in urban area are one of the bottlenecks for urban traffic. In peak hours, trains are passed much higher than other day and night time. Then severe congestion of road traffic are caused at every railroad crossings in urban area in Japan. Traffic characteristics, including starting headway, capacity and passengercar equivalence, however, have not been clarified. The
more » ... urposes of this paper are to clarify saturation flow rate and capacity, passengercar equivalence, and to formulate delay of road traffic flows at railroad crossings.
