A variant of the Glimm’s scheme is suggested which combines the esthetic features of both the original scheme and front-tracking one by Bressan. The modification of the Bressan’s scheme allows to avoid the use of nonphysical waves. The properties of convergence and consistency are proven for the introduced scheme.
