Smart Infrastructure

Canada’s roads and highways are our chief movers of people, goods, and services. It is critical to our society, and our economy that, roadways are kept safe and in good repair, and that we seek innovative data-driven solutions to infrastructure issues.

Since its inception, CAA has encouraged the development and management of road infrastructure that is safe and efficient. This vision recognizes the need for adequate public investment in modern transportation infrastructure and technology. It never forgets that better-engineered roads are also safer roads, for all who travel on or beside them.

Smart infrastructure takes many forms in the 21st century. It’s not just about concrete and asphalt. It encompasses complete street design, so pedestrians, cyclists and motorists can all travel safely and efficiently. It includes planning now for autonomous vehicles, and the use of technology to improve traffic flows.


Breaking the Bottlenecks : Congestion Solutions for Canada

Most of us know what it’s like to be mired in traffic on a busy Canadian roadway. Often tempers flare, blood pressure shoots up. Fuel is wasted, pollution increases, and our productivity takes a tumble as we are late for work. Road congestion takes a huge toll on our quality of life, our economy, and our environment.

The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) commissioned CPCS, a Canadian-based international transportation consulting firm, to examine best practices to ease congestion. The result is Congestion Solutions – a toolkit to help policy makers and the public identify potential ways, big and small, to alleviate traffic congestion.

The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) commissioned a first of its kind study which evaluates Canada’s worst Bottlenecks.

Studies show that bottlenecks are the single biggest contributor to road delay, far outpacing traffic accidents, inclement weather and construction. Grinding to a Halt, Evaluating Canada’s Worst Bottlenecks provides data based evidence for decision-makers at the federal, provincial and municipal level to use when making decisions on infrastructure investment and environment policy. It includes the cost to Canadians of these bottlenecks in terms of lost time, productivity and added greenhouse gas emissions.
