Abstract

Road Engineering Association of Malaysia (REAM) gazetted traffic impact Assessment (TIA) Guidelines in 2011. TIA is a systematic and scientific process used as early identification to analyse the traffic impacts generated by a development and control with necessary mitigation measures. This study aims to identify level of knowledge of the Approving Authority in the practice of TIA report submission by questionnaire distribution and the data collected is analysed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences software. This research study focuses on the Approving Authority because of their involvement in the evaluation of TIA report and approval of planning proposal. Lacking of knowledge in TIA understanding will cause ineffectiveness in the TIA implementation. Hence, the scope for this research is the local authorities and the Public Work Department in the state of Johor, Malaysia. This will contribute to the significant of the understanding of the Approving Authority in the practice of TIA and to determine any improvements required to effectively implementing TIA in all stages. This study shows obvious differences between the level of knowledge state PWD (95%) and the local authority (51%) that hinders the intention to have the local authority to act as the Approving Authority in TIA.
