Traffic signal timing

There are two levels of signal timing designed to improve flow.

Intersection signal timing

Timings developed for traffic signals are based on Ministry Of Transportation Ontario Traffic Guidelines.

  • Minimum timing intervals
  • Pedestrian timing
  • Clearance intervals for amber and all red
  • Left turn signal timing
  • Bike signal timing


Network signal timing

Timing designed to help traffic flow through multiple traffic signals on a section of the roadway.

Network signal timing changes based on time of day and traffic volume. Timing is reviewed daily and adjustments are made when needed
