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.
City/Municipal planner, City/Municipal engineer, traffic engineer, transportation planner, local and national government personnel involved in transportation and related functions and TIA would be evaluators.
At the end of the training, the participants will be able:

- To apply the TIA Report checklist in evaluating traffic impact assessment report, and
- To assess the suitability of recommended measures to mitigate traffic impact.
