This handbook provides traffic operations practitioners with a guide to using the Canadian Traffic Signal and Pedestrian Signal Head Warrant Matrix Procedure, a calculation tool which is also provided; and to ensure that the procedure is applied in a consistent and comprehensive way.
The Traffic Signal and Pedestrian Signal Head Warrant Handbook describes the matrix warrant methodology, and the principles and assumptions behind the procedure. The handbook identifies the input data required for the warrant analysis and describes how each of the warrant components is calculated. A number of case studies, with variations on each case study, are provided to highlight the sensitivity of each component within the warrant calculation.
Note: This handbook is an updated version of, and replaces, Traffic Signal Warrant Handbook (2007).
