The pollution caused by road traffic is a significant problem for society in the 21st century. Climate change and mortality among the population, are increasingly influenced by increasing traffic in urban agglomerations. The present study aims at the multi-criteria analysis of the pollution caused by traffic at several busy intersections in the city of Sibiu, Romania. Classification of intersections was done using the Synchro Studio with Warrants software. Air pollutants, noise, and the number of vehicles in the traffic were taken into account. To analyze these criteria as a whole, the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) methods were used. A comparative study has been undertaken on the results obtained by applying the two multicriteria methods. The paper aims to provide solutions for the eco-economy of the future. View Full-Text
