CITE has updated this valuable technical resource, widely regarded as fundamental to the understanding of transportation operations related to signalized intersections. The new Guide has been endorsed by the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) as a national reference on the topic. The Guide will be supported through a joint committee between CITE and TAC.
The Guide includes a comprehensive methodology for analyzing and designing signal phasing and timing for intersections, saturation flow data from across Canada, discussion on transit priority operations, designing for safety, and other relevant topics. Four worked examples are included.
PTV Vistro 2020 is the recommended software for implementation of the signalized analysis procedures in the Guide. PTV Vistro 2020 also contains intersection capacity analysis methods based on the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) 2000, 2010 and Sixth editions, as well as other analysis methods for roundabouts.
