Traffic Signals Design & Operation Workshop
The aim of this course is to introduce the principles of best practice traffic signal design and operation. The course will include:
- Fundamentals of traffic signal analysis
- Traffic signal layouts – geometric elements, location of signal equipment, signal phasing
- Operational design – signal group allocation, detector map, signal phasing, phase diagrams and control of right turns
- Operational design – detector functions, intergreen time and pedestrians
- Introduction to signal operations and signal coordination, including SCATS.
At the end of this course the learner should be able to:
- Undertake first principles analysis of signalised intersections
- Understand how to interpret traffic signal layouts and the fundamentals associated with their preparation
- Understand the complexities and features within the operational design (Operation Sheets) of signalised intersections, including signal phasing and operational time settings
- Understand how and why the Sydney coordinated adaptive traffic system (SCATS) is used by the Department of Transport to manage the traffic signal network.
