Speed is an important transportation consideration because it relates to safety, time, comfort, convenience and economics. Due to development of lpoh-Lumut Corridor, the need to address the growing traffic volume and safety on lpoh-Lumut Highway arises. Speed is also related to Level of Service (LOS) characteristic of a particular highway. This study aims to assess the general roadway speed on lpoh-Lumut Highway and to propose new set of speed limit. lpoh-Lumut Highway is being demarcated by normal car odometer during a trial run from Ipoh to Lumut. Spot speed studies will be conducted in stretches demarcated. Based on the similar study conducted in United States of America, speed data collected will be used to set a speed zone along Ipoh-Lumut Highway. Literatures have supported that using 85th percentile speed to set an appropriate speed limit will result in a reduction in crashes and an increase in Level of Service.
