CITE NCS Luncheon: Cycle Tracks and Protected Intersections – Why and How?

February 10, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

On Wednesday, February 10th, we will be receiving a presentation by Kornel Mucsi of the City of Ottawa on the subject of Cycle Tracks and Protected Intersections.

Kornel Mucsi

Kornel Mucsi is the Program Manager of Transportation – Strategic Planning at the City of Ottawa where he coordinates a group of talented planners and engineers working on transportation policy development, multimodal transportation planning and modelling. Kornel’s main focus is on the connection between transportation operational decisions, infrastructure design elements, and the City’s long term strategic transportation objectives.

Kornel has 20+ years experience in transportation planning and engineering, he holds a BSc degree in engineering from the former Yugoslavia, Master’s degrees from the University of Westminster (UK) and the University of Toronto, and a PhD degree from Carleton University.

Cycle Tracks and Protected Intersections: Why and How?

Setting future driving, transit, walking, or cycling modal share targets is a fundamental element of strategic planning. However, without supporting land use and appropriate roadway infrastructure, the required change in modal shares will not be achieved.  In terms of cycling, the City’s strategic plan is to develop a network of low stress cycling routes which will be attractive for the majority of the population. These routes will include cycle tracks and protected intersections.

The ‘Cycle Tracks and Protected Intersections: Why and How?’ CITE presentation will illustrate why this concept is pursued not just in Ottawa, but in some other progressive North American jurisdictions as well. The presentation will be beneficial to all who are interested in multimodal urban roadway infrastructure planning, design, and operation.
