Description An important part of the urban public transport system consists of a network of tramways which effectively connects parts of the city and / or suburban areas. Tram is suitable for the entire metropolitan area, in particular for wider central zone, and the transport capacity ranges from 4000 to 15,000 passengers per direction and per track per hour, depending on the method of running the tracks. Tracks can run as integrated or segregated on-street tramways or as offstreet tramways wholly separated from pavement. The construction of the tram tracks on road surfaces is more expensive, traffic is slower, and special attention should be given to measures for traffic regulation due to frequent conflicts with other road users. Commonly, tracks are built separated for each direction of travel, but due to the lack of possibility for such traffic management, a single track can be performed for both directions of travel. The planning and construction of bi-directional single track is specific because of facilities like passing loops, signaling, etc., but also for presence and frequency of conflicts of tram with other types of traffic. The paper will describe solutions for tram traffic in the city of Osijek, with special emphasis on the tram traffic on by-directional single track tramway and increase of safety measures for conducting traffic.
