Context-Sensitive Regional Transportation Corridor Design Guidelines
The Context-Sensitive Regional Transportation Corridor Guidelines provide design standards for planning and designing complete streets that include space for all modes of transportation.

Staff have now completed a review to ensure the effectiveness of these and modifications have been identified. A public meeting will be held April 9, 2013 at 9 a.m. in Regional Council Chambers to receive comments from agencies, organizations, and interested members of the public on the Proposed Modifications to the Implementation Guidelines for Regional Transportation Corridor Design.
Transportation Impact Study Guidelines:
The Transportation Impact Study Guidelines is an important tool in the overall development planning process. The guidelines assist developers and public agencies in making land use decisions, provide information that identifies the impacts of proposed development on the existing streets and circulation networks and recommend mitigation measures for the impacts identified.
The Region of Waterloo has a Roundabout policy that states that an Intersection Control Study be conducted when design work is being considered for:
- a new intersection on a Regional road
- an existing intersection where traffic signals are warranted
- an existing Regional road intersection that is programmed for improvements to address an identified safety or capacity problem;
- any other location as determined by Regional staff or Regional Councillors.
