Course materials were developed and 18 electrical technicians and support staff successfully completed RoadCulture’s Introduction to Traffic Signal Management workshop at Bundaberg Regional Council. Attendees varied in experience level, however most found the training interesting. Two thirds of surveyed participants agreed the workshop improved their communication and would result in better methods for undertaking traffic signal work.
A major shopping centre development was proposed which would increase traffic volumes at an arterial road junction, while road network flows had recently changed following the signalisation of two other intersections along the arterial road. RoadCulture provided a comprehensive report for the shopping centre development which included:
- A review of the functional classification of the road network, and;
- An options analysis/concept design which considered the advantages and disadvantages of controlling the shopping centre junction using give way control, roundabout or traffic signals.
The report proved to be an effective project document which aided consultation with civil contractors, local government, state government, local residents and businesses.
