Civil Engineering 4T04: Transportation Engineering II - Modelling Transit and ITS
Kerianne, Jessica, Jedursha, Peter and Alyson - Civil Engineering students at McMaster University, counted vehicles at the five major intersections of Catherine, John, James, MacNab and Bay. They then modelled construction drawings of the proposed layout and input their collected data using the Synchro 5 software. This optimized the traffic signals of the 5 intersections to give the LRT priority.
Next they will generate suggestions to highlight the impacts of LRT and share these findings with community stakeholders.
