Synopsis

Traffic Impact Assessment or more commonly known as TIA is an imperative transportation planning approach used to evaluate professionally the potential impacts of new development on transportation and traffic systems on its surrounding areas. In conducting TIA, the transportation planning utilizes travel forecasting models to predict changes in travel patterns and for potential improvements in response to changes in regional development, demographics, and transportation supply. The four-stage demand model which comprises of trip generation, trip distribution, modal split, and traffic assignment is the primary tool for forecasting travel demand.

In developing countries such as Malaysia, development of new areas is unavoidable, and it is  essential to the growth of the country. However, the development of  new  areas with  construction of new buildings and infrastructures will definitely produce additional trips. These trips  will  eventually increase the amount of traffic on roads and may adversely affect the performance of existing junction. Therefore, in order to avoid this damaging process, it is essential to evaluate the extent of damage on the performance of the junction and consequently recommend mitigation measures where any imminent congestion situation may be avoided via proper planning and corrective measures. This can be achieved through proper execution of the traffic impact assessment and studies.
