Traffic Impact Assessment for Technical Evaluators

Urban and regional development projects, such as malls, housing, school and commercial established to have remarkable impacts on the transportation system and its  environment. It is necessary to evaluate  the significance of traffic-related  impacts  before the  implementation  of a proposed development. The TIA  process allows these  future  impacts  to be planned for and mitigated. TIA  is now being required by some local  governments and national agencies for  some developments before the issuance of necessary permits.  This training  provides an  overview  of the TIA process in the Philippines and discuss the  contents of a TIA report.
