09.18.2018 :: GVITE Lunch Meeting - Thursday, October 4, 2018

Presentation: Roundabouts: Design Principles and Non-Standard Applications

Presenter: Stephen Sargeant, M.Eng., P.Eng., PTOE 

Location: Holiday Inn Express Metrotown

4405 Central Blvd, Burnaby, BC V5H 4M3

Date: Thursday, October 4, 2018

Time: 11:30 am - 12:00 am (Registration & Lunch) 

The use of roundabouts in North America has progressed significantly over the past 25 years. Most jurisdictions have guidelines from which they can plan and design standard applications. However, most locations have at least one constraint that will influence the design and require engineering judgement as to how best to deal with it. In many locations there are conflicting constraints which must be weighed against each other. Specific examples with photos from BC and around the world. This presentation and discussion will look at how “non-standard” roundabout designs are being implemented with varying degrees of success. Accommodating cycle tracks, pedestrian facilities, utility constraints and design vehicles will be shown and discussed.
