Registration open: “Designing Safe Intersections For All Users"

Complete Streets need complete intersections. Come learn the Dutch approach at "Designing Safe Intersections for All Users: Cycle Tracks at Signalized Intersections and Roundabouts" a one-day Master Class following the 2015 Toronto Complete Streets Forum on Friday, 2 October. This Master Class will be taught by Johan Diepens, CEO of Mobycon and Designer Dick van Veen

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.

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:

  • Find out about Dutch innovation in multimodal intersection design and discuss how this can inspire innovation in the Canadian context.
  • Learn how to prioritize the needs of vulnerable road users and to maximize safety while maintaining traffic flows.
  • Review various types of cycle track intersections such as: single and bidirectional cycle tracks, signalized and unsignalized intersections, and roundabouts.
  • Work alongside workshop participants and trainers to apply new Dutch inspired knowledge to Canadian examples.

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.
