Town of Canmore wins a Design Innovation Award for the Railway Avenue Protected Intersection

On February 27th, 2023 , our North American director Elizbeth Allingham attended the 2023 Minister’s Awards for Transportation Innovation in Alberta, Canada. These awards recognize individuals and organizations for their work in advancing transportation in Alberta. Mobycon, together with the Town of Canmore and several consulting partners, received a Design Innovation award for our work in the Town of Canmore for the Bow Valley Trail and Railway Avenue Protected Intersection with Near-side Signals.

 

 

 

 

Our new colleague Narayan Donaldson and our Manager or International Strategy Lennart Nout, discussed the project in an upcoming Mobycon Academy.

Watch it here on Thursday, March 30th.

A Deep Dive into the Town of Canmore’s Award-winning Protected Intersection

The Town of Canmore, Canada won the 2023 Alberta Minister’s Award for Transportation Design Innovation for the protected intersection between Bow Valley Trail and Railway Avenue. The concept design was created by the Town of Canmore, Mobycon, and Dick van Veen, the detailed design was done by McElhanney – who were the engineer of record. Traffic signals were designed McElhanney with further cabinet adjustment completed by Stantec. In this Mobycon Academy Short, Manager of International Strategy Lennart Nout introduces our new colleague, Integrated Mobility Consultant Narayan Donaldson, to talk about the features that make this intersection stand out.   

He dives into the weeds of protected intersection design, near-side signals, multi-stage pedestrian crossings, and the effect good design can have on road safety and efficiency. Hopefully, more cities and towns across North America will follow Canmore’s lead after seeing its success.
