Overview

A two-day course covering the principles of design and good practice, with practical examples and workshops to reinforce key learning points for the design of Priority Junctions and Development Accesses.

After taking this course, delegates will be more confident about applying good practice principles to their designs, resulting in better designs from both a road safety and capacity point of view.

Important Notes:

1. The design sessions include good practice guidance but not AutoCAD training.

2. The PICADY sessions include guidance on interpreting the model outputs and how the main input factors affect the results. They do not include a demonstration of the software. Training on PICADY is available from TRL, who own and license the software.
