£125 - £249 + VAT


This event has a focus on technical details of modern roundabout design, in particular making them safer for pedestrians and cyclists while also handling vehicular traffic efficiency.

Featuring case study presentations from roundabouts either recently installed or in the design stage from around the UK and a roundup of European and global best practice. It will cover the technical design details, modelling and analysis of the results post construction.

The day will include presentations and opportunities for discussion and will close with a site visit to the newly installed, Turbo Roundabout, in Bedford which successfully handles over 25,000 vehicles a day. Originally seen by motorcyclists as potentially lethal, this controversial re-design has been successfully handling over 25,000 vehicles a day so far without incident.
