ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the lane-filtering trials in Sydney, New South Wales, and also focuses on the lane-filtering system in other countries. The trials were conducted during march-April 2013 and the motorcyclists were allowed to lane filter in a small, predetermined part of the CBD. The lane-filtering is used to improve traffic flow, without compromising traffic safety.

    Compared to a typical one-way multi-lane highway, a one-way divided highway operated, for instance, in the form of two two-lanes instead of four lanes may have an advantage on safety more than operation. In congested traffic conditions, drivers would change lanes into less heavy lanes. Frequent...
