Topic: Traffic signal design workshops

We recently ran traffic signal design workshops for Christchurch City Council staff: three workshops of 3 hours each. The objective was to lift the knowledge level of staff across the organisation on fundamental aspects of design and operation of traffic signals. The target audiences were council’s in-house design team and CTOC staff, most of whom have little to do with the actual design of signals. The client’s objective was to give these staff a better understanding of the underlying concepts. Why are we doing what we are doing?

The training course was custom-designed for these workshops. Bruce Conaghan, the client for this commission, is happy for the material to be used to train others who work in the industry. The workshops were well received, with an average 94% rating of “good” or “very good” across all evaluation questions.

Is there interest elsewhere in the country for such training? If organisations signed up for this, would it be ok to let staff from smaller councils or consultants attend?
