“Designing Safe Intersections for All Users: Cycle Tracks at Signalized Intersections and Roundabouts” is a one day master class presented by Mobycon in partnership with Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) and the 2015 Complete Streets Forum.

With increasing demand for segregated cycling facilities, protected bike lanes and cycle tracks, cities are creating spaces that will make cycling a viable, safe, healthy and fun mobility option. A number of Canadian cities are doing pioneering work in implementing these facilities. Intersections are pivotal points, which require careful design to ensure the safety of vulnerable road users.

Dutch traffic engineers and mobility experts will deliver a one-day master class exclusively for participants of the Toronto Complete Streets Forum. Many countries look to the Netherlands for inspiration given their high rates of cycling and rigorous approach to maximizing safety for vulnerable road users like cyclists, pedestrians, children and those with disabilities.

Workshop content will be focused on local case studies and application exercises to examine how cycle track intersections can be designed to meet the needs of all road users. Types of cycle track intersections to be examined include: single and bidirectional cycle tracks, signalized and un-signalized intersections and roundabouts.

During the master class participants will:

Workshop participants also have the opportunity to order their own copy of the highly-regarded C.R.O.W. “Design Manual for Bicycle Traffic” ($195 CAD plus HST), which is presently not widely available in Canada. This is not required reading for the training session.

Lunch and two coffee breaks are included in the price of the workshop.
