Currently, the number of vehicles in UTP has been increasing year by year thus
contributing to several issues such as traffic congestion and limited parking spaces. In
order to reduce the problems, it is recommended that a walking network is established in
UTP in order to provide more convenient walking environment to the students, thus
making walking within the campus more attractive rather than riding vehicles. The project
proposed a walking network inUTP as to promote students to walk within the campus in
order to reduce the number of vehicles in UTP. If walking is made more attractive, more
students will favour walking as the main mode of travel in the campus. This project
provides proper and better pedestrian facilities in UTP besides promoting healthy lifestyle
to UTP students and offer UTP students' safer and pleasurable pedestrian walkway. The
main methodology isthe travel demand modeling involving the usage ofEMME2 software
tool. The data was gained from the questionnaires which were distributed to the students.
With the data as input, few scenarios were generated and compared for its effectiveness.
Providing better pedestrian facilities and a more welcoming environment for pedestrians
appears to increase the willingness to walk. Well designed facilities will attract students to
walk since they feel safe and comfortable. The congestion in UTPs' route network will be
minimized as more students will shifts from their current mode oftransport to walking,
