Traffic Signal Design (Associate Degree)

In the current climate of ever increasing traffic on the roads, junction capacity has become an important issue. One tool in the fight to improve capacity on the country’s roads is Traffic Management and an increasingly important way to achieve that is well designed/maintained traffic signals. This course will enable the delegate to undertake basic signal design and so aid in improving capacity and thus keeping traffic moving.

Aims and Objectives:
The course aims to provide delegates with the skills necessary to undertake basic signal design as an aid to better Traffi... [Read More]

Traffic Data Collection, Analysis and Validation Workshop (Associate Degree)

Any traffic analysis and subsequent design has to be based on sound data. Any work based on inaccurate or unreliable traffic data is open to question at a later stage. Correcting such uncertainty can lead to delays and significant extra cost. It is important to be sure that traffic data are appropriate, and collected in a controlled and auditable manner to avoid such issues. However, often budgets for data collection are limited, and it is important to understand the risks run by constraining budgets. There is always a tension in deciding how much to spend in order to reduce risk. Th... [Read More]




Priority Junction Operation and Capacity Analysis (Associate Degree)

The basic skills traffic engineers and planners need include understanding how junctions work, and how to assess how they will perform in practice. Traffic engineers and planners also need to be able to understand the limitations of such analyses. The most common way of assessing priority junctions and roundabouts is by using PICADY or ARCADY - industry-standard computer analysis packages. This course provides a basic understanding of how T-junctions, crossroads and roundabouts operate and are designed, including the principles of priority control on which the assessment methodology ...
