Results of a microscopic model of mixed motorised traffic consisting of short vehicles, (e.g. cars), and long vehicles, (taken to be double the length of the short vehicles), for an urban two-way single lane intersection are presented here. We model the intersection using both signalised and un-signalised stop control rules. The model allows for the detection of bottleneck activity in both homogenous and heterogeneous traffic conditions, and was validated by means of field data collected in Dublin, Ireland. The validated model was used to study the impact of inclusion of long vehicles on traffic performance in an urban environment. Traffic mix is, however, taken to be dominated by short vehicles overall, in argument with observed live data collected.
