Traffic impact assessment (TIA) is a systematic study to analyse the impact of the additional traffic generated by any new development on existing transport system in an area. Generally, TIA is required for big developments which have the potential to generate a huge number of pedestrian and vehicular traffic. TIA is undertaken to ensure the developer address the relevant issues related to transport within and the surroundings of the proposed development and if required local authorities may also recover some developmental charges to upgrade the transport infrastructure impacted areas. TIA is gaining popularity among decision makers. State authorities have started to recognise the importance of TIA and included TIA in their rules and regulations. This self-paced online training course will help participants to build a comprehensive understanding and knowledge base on the overall purpose, components and benefits of conducting a TIA including the regulatory provisions and analytical techniques to carry out the assessment work.
