Guide canadien de conception géométrique des routes

Maintenant disponible en anglais!

La version française de cet ouvrage sera disponible en 2018. 

Le Guide canadien de conception géométrique des routes de l’ATC est un outil de référence incontournable pour les spécialistes de la conception géométrique au Canada. Le Guide a contribué à l’aménagement cohérent et sécuritaire des réseaux routiers au Canada, à l’échelle régionale, provinciale et nationale.

Édition 2017

Le Guide offre aux planificateurs et aux concepteurs les outils nécessaires au développement de solutions qui répondent aux besoins de tous les usagers de la route. Des lignes directrices en matière de conception d’auroutes, d’artères, de routes collectrices, et de routes locales, en milieu urbain et en milieu rural, ainsi que les aménagements intégrés pour les cyclistes et les piétons, sont soulignées.

La présente édition du Guide canadien de conception géométrique des routes (2017) remplace l’édition du Guide de 1999 et les révisions subséquentes et propose de nouvelles solutions de conception géométrique des routes et des pratiques actuelles en matière de facteurs humains. 

L’enregistrement de ce webinaire (anglais seulement) offre une vue d’ensemble du nouveau contenu et des principaux changements de l’édition 2017.

Possibilités d’apprentissage

Un programme pancanadien de colloques, offrant des séances d'apprentissage d’un ou deux jours, est en voie d’élaboration afin d’éduquer les professionnels sur la conception géomérique en général ainsi que le nouveau contenu du Guide. Trois experts et auteurs du Guide animeront les colloques.
