Explore the Transportation and Land Use Interaction

Traffic Impact Analysis

Course Overview

This GLOMACS Traffic Impact Analysis training course will provide a comprehensive understanding of the overall purpose, benefits, components of a traffic impact analysis, in addition to guidelines and the latest techniques utilized in data preparation and assessment processes.

Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) is implemented to assess and evaluate the interaction between existing transport infrastructure and proposed land development projects. Development projects that would generate significant additional traffic require comprehensive Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA). Without a clear picture of the type of traffic movements or their scale, timing, and location, there is a high risk of the traffic movements to lead to unforeseen traffic congestion and safety concerns where the development connects to the roadway network. Preparing a Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) report is a complex process.

The participants will have a thorough understanding of the gravity of a development project from the transportation perspective and will be able to conduct an in-depth Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA).

This GLOMACS training course will highlight:

  • Purpose and the need for a Traffic Impact Analysis
  • Overall Traffic Impact Analysis Framework
  • Step-by-Step Operational and Safety Analysis
  • Data Collection and Processing Tools, Techniques, for Historical Trends and Forecasting

Training Objectives

By the end of this GLOMACS training course, participants will be able to:

  • Develop a solid base of knowledge in traffic impact analysis for types of a development project
  • Evaluate the existing traffic and transportation conditions on different scales of networks
  • Understand the overall framework of a Traffic Impact Analysis Study
  • Identify potential adverse impacts on the current transportation system and to proposed development projects
  • Evaluate the traffic conditions in the future year
  • Recommend traffic improvement schemes to mitigate any deficiencies identified within the study area

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Traffic Impact Analysis training course will have topics utilizing a variety of proven adult learning techniques, focused on case studies and best practices. This will include active participation in class practice cases, followed by active group sessions, video materials and tabletop activities.

Organisational Impact

The organization will benefit from understanding the guidelines and critical aspects of a Traffic Impact Analysis Study. This will guide and manage to reduce costs and enhance their organizations' workflow through the proper documentation of a Traffic Impact Analysis.

Impact on the organisation from delegates attending this GLOMACS Traffic Impact Analysis training course includes the following benefits:

  • Adopt an organized and planned way of Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) Documentation
  • Establish a solid foundation of their team in transport and land use interaction
  • Reduce labor costs in Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) documentation and reporting via enhancing the participants’ efficiency
  • Enhance the operational processes, policies and workflows
  • Advance their comprehension in dealing with robust cases in traffic impact assessment
  • Improve their public image

Personal Impact

This GLOMACS training course will personally benefit the participants to gain or enhance their understanding and knowledge by the following:

  • Evaluate and assess the impact of any scale development project’s impact on transportation
  • Solid understanding of the framework, and each step of the methodologies
  • Learn the latest data analytics techniques to process historical information and forecast future traffic of each transport mode
  • Expertly integrate historical data/information, justify choices, and communicate results
  • Confidence in making recommendations regarding the necessary improvements to the transportation authorities
