Microsimulation software packages in the field of traffic and transportation have considerably facilitated designing traffic arteries and traffic objects and the analysis of the conditions for traffic in the existing road network. These software packages have been especially useful in urban conditions where the road network is complex and heterogeneous. Besides, the feature of a traffic flow in the street network is changed over time due to the change of the purpose of the existing surfaces, their design, building commercial structures or other attractive facilities, etc. However, the most important feature of microsimulation software packages is in the case of interventions on the street network and the change in traffic mode. Typical analysis procedures in these situations cannot process different variations simply or take into consideration all relevant influences on the conditions for traffic taking place in changed conditions. This paper represents the application of the microsimulation software Trafficware Synchro applied to the town of Ruma and a way for improving traffic conditions in the urban network, in case of closing one traffic artery in the town. Furthermore, apart from the existing conditions, traffic conditions in the planning period of 20 years have been forecasted.
