A Transportation Impact Study (TIS) is a study which assesses the effects that a development’s traffic will have on the transportation system and the community. They range in detail and complexity depending on the size and location of a development. Transportation Impact Studies should accompany developments which have the potential to impact the transportation system. The study can be used as a tool in determining whether a development is appropriate for a particular location and what improvements to the transportation system are necessary, if any.
This project determines the potential impacts on existing traffic due to multi-purpose recreational mall named “The Place” in DHA Phase 8, Karachi. The study building will serve as commercial purpose containing mall, Cineplex Cinema, Food Lounge and Sports Complex etc .
This study concludes whether a development is appropriate for a particular location and what improvements to the transportation system are necessary.
Transportation Impact Studies includes:
- Forecast additional traffic associated with a proposed development
- Assess the impacts of a proposed development
- Determine necessary improvements to accommodate the new development and minimize impacts to the transportation system.
- Assist in land use decision making
This report determines the adequacy of the existing or planned transportation improvements and also guides development authorities for optimal solution for right-of-way, street improvements, traffic signals, transit shelters, sidewalks connections or transportation demand management programs that are necessary to mitigate transportation deficiencies.
