ITE Manitoba – CITE/TAC Traffic Calming Workshop

November 27, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

$30 – $170

ITE Manitoba will be hosting a half-day TAC/CITE Traffic Calming Workshop on Wednesday, November 27, 2019 starting at 8:30 a.m. and ending over the lunch hour. Registration fees will be subsidized by ITE Manitoba for all participants as a thank you for continued support from you, the ITE community, over the past few years.

The Workshop:

The purpose of the workshop is to introduce the components of the new TAC/CITE Canadian Guide to Traffic Calming (CGTC) – Second Edition (2018). The guide will help practitioners better understand the principles of traffic calming for both reactive operational retrofits and proactive approaches for new/reconstructed roadways, while providing guidance on processes, tools and techniques.

The learning objectives for this course include:

  • Define Traffic Calming and understand the function of the CGTC for Traffic Calming in Canada.
  • Identify the components of a Traffic Calming process and how to achieve Traffic Calming implementation.
  • Understand the range of Traffic Calming treatments in the CGTC; their applicability, effectiveness and design guidance.
  • Apply CGTC towards development of a Traffic Calming policy.

The workshop will be presented by Mr. Brian Malone, P.Eng. PTOE, from CIMA+. Brian was one of the key authors of the guideline.
