Abstract

The need for moretransportation options in UTP is increasing. ThusUTP clearly need more transportation alternatives to meet the travel demandwithout increasing vehicle emission or congestion. Therefore, the author had proposed cycling as an alternative to travel within the UTP. The main objective is to propose and improves bicycle facilities in UTP.The project coversthree steps,which are; 1) Questionnaire and Data Survey Analysis, 2) Traffic Modelling and 3) Design the facilities to be provided. The approach that is commonly used to forecast travel demand is the 'four-step process' of; 1) Trip Generation and Attraction, 2) Trip Distribution, 3) Modal Choice and 4) Traffic Assignment. EMME2 software is used to forecast the travel demand in two times horizon, which are 2005 and 2010. The total population of UTP students in 2005 base year is 4400 and for 2010, total population for folly developed is 6600. From EMME2 analysis, UTP will experienced great traffic congestion in year 2010. The volume on link increased up to 2000trips per day. Road provided in UTP is onlytwo lanes for both ways. Reconnaissance survey was conducted to provide an assessment of the physical features in the study area. The best route location for cycle network was identified where the distance to travel was kept to minimum. Shared cycle and walkway and two-way segregated cycle path are to be proposed. The proposed cycle network will focus in the region of villages and academic buildings. Cycle racks are also to be proposed at the entrance of academic building in order to ease the bicyclers to park their bicycle.
