The objective of the project is to study the traffic pattern in the campus, and to determine the
amount of parking spaces needed. Once these data is collected and analyzed, a projection for
future forecast would be made to gain a foothold on the expected amount of traffic. The
results of these analyses would be used as the basis to accomplish the most important and
beneficial objective of the project, which is to propose a traffic circulation system and traffic
management system to ensure comfort and safety of the campus road users.
The bulk of the I iterature review was done on various traffic circulation concepts and the
relevant traffic studies, parking designs and studies, as well as some common types of traffic
management measures. The subsequent section of the report elaborates on the methodology
and the project work performed. The main tasks performed were information gathering,
conducting t raffle an parking studies, subsequent analysis and I ater devising a new traffic
management scheme to ensure convenience of students and staffs.
The results of the project are clearly discussed in Section 4.0 of Results and Discussion.
Several new parking facilities were suggested for the hostels, as well as some other at the
new academic buildings. Several prudent traffic management measures were implemented,
covering aspects of safety, increasing accessibility and improved traffic circulation. The main
measures suggested were imposing limits to amount of student vehicles, converting some
roads to one way streets, implementation of a bus/shuttle service system and finally proper
enforcement of this scheme.
The fmal section of this report includes various recommendations that could have been done
to improve this project, as well as s orne other suggestions for future work expansion and
