Overview

A one-day course covering the principles of design and good practice for roundabouts and mini-roundabouts.

Completing the course will give delegates more confidence in applying good practice principles to their designs and result 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 ARCADY 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 the ARCADY is available from TRL, who own and license the software.
