Wednesday, August 30, 2017

The Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) has announced a series of cross-Canada seminars on the 2017 Edition of the Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads.

Starting in St.-John’s, NL on September 28, the seminars will run in various locations across Canada until November 30. Registration is now open for all dates; early-bird and special group rates are available.

Seminar registrants will receive a one-time, 15% discount on the purchase of one copy of the Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads (2017) in either print (PKG-GEODES17-E) or e-book (PKG-GEODES17-EBK) format. A promo code will be provided as part of the seminar registration email confirmation. Offer valid until 2017-12-15.

The 2017 Edition of TAC’s Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads provides guidance to planners and designers in developing design solutions that meet the needs of a range of road users while addressing the context of policy decisions and the surrounding environment. Design guidelines are included for freeways, arterials, collectors, and local roads, in both urban and rural locations as well as for integrated bicyclist and pedestrian design.

The one-day seminar provides an overview of the contents in the 2017 Guide focusing on key changes to geometric design elements and processes. It addresses critical aspects of the design process intended to provide participants with a solid understanding of those key changes as well as applications and practices arising from the implementation of the 2017 Edition of the Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads.
