Transportation System Mangement
Transcript of Transportation System Mangement
System Management INTERSECTION: Apalit to Malolos corner San Agustin to Guinawa PARKING BAY SURVEY Transportation Systems Management (TSM) is a strategy aimed at improving the overall performance of the transportation network without resorting to large-scale, expensive capital improvements. TSM through better supervision and operation of existing facilities integrates techniques from across disciplines to increase safety, efficiency and capacity for all modes in the transportation system. It provides money saving multimodal solutions that relieve congestion, optimize infrastructure investments, promote travel options, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. VOLUME COUNT SURVEY Volume count studies are conducted to determine the number, movement, and classification of vehicles within or through an area or at selected points within an area. These data can help identify critical flow time periods, determine the influence of large vehicles on vehicular traffic flow, or document traffic volume trends. The length of the sampling period depends on the type of count being taken and the intended use of the data recorded.

SURVEY Pedestrian data is used for an increasing number and variety of purposes, for instance, to support traffic junction modeling, or to assess the requirements for suitable locations of pedestrian crossing facilities at junctions and other popular crossing locations. Pedestrian count is necessary information in order for cities to plan transportation to create better pedestrian flow throughout the city. The gathered data may reveal potential problems and symptoms of irregularities within the daily traffic.

Location: Balagtas Terminal to Q.C, Cubao (Edsa) Road safety audits (RSAs) is a safety tools that offer promise to help reduce roadway crashes and fatalities. The key elements of this definition are that the RSA Is a formal examination with a structured process and not a cursory review; is conducted independently, by professionals who are not currently involved in the project; is completed by a team of qualified professionals representing appropriate disciplines; and Focuses solely on safety issues. Audits conducted early in the life of a project—in the planning or initial design stages—have been shown to be the most beneficial and the easiest to integrate with an agency’s existing safety program Based on the data gathered by the surveyors, there are lots of improvements needed on our highway system. This could result to increase of road accidents.
• The root cause for such things is either from the government, specifically the DPWH and MMDA or from the community using the road.
• Technical problems, like the visibility of the road, its layout and geometric details could be trace from the designers of the road or the engineers involve in the planning of the road design.
• The road markings, on the other hand, gradually fade due to weather conditions and continuous contact to tires.
• Signage and lighting are not a problem at all. It can be fixed anytime as well as the pedestrian facilities.
• The road surface and the road defects need a serious solution as soon as possible. Proper road maintenance could result to a decrease in road accidents and increase in the safety of the pedestrians and road users. Parking Bay Survey is used to collect several statistics that are used to access the parking need. In this case of survey, every parking stall is monitored at a continuous interval of 30 minutes or so and the license plate number is noted down. This will give the data regarding the duration for which a particular vehicle was using the parking bay. This method is very labor intensive but gives result in the most accurate and realistic data. This survey can also help you to be aware of the availability of parking spaces, because this can monitor density of the vehicle/people in a certain area at a given time. We conclude that arrival of vehicle on this parking area is greatest around 9:30 – 10:00AM. This is because of some establishments surrounding the churchand its charge free parking area that makes the area more advisable to be a parking location. Also this church is well-known place which really attract some tourist to come along, and this also serve as a greater factor to be consider on the parking survey. We also conclude that most of the vehicle that parks here are all private own vehicles. During the survey period,only few Public utility vehicles were parked at the area. 10 KM PAVEMENT INVESTIGATION Pavement investigations are cost effective way of obtaining information of the condition of the road. It is used to evaluate the road surface and to resolve the options for suitable treatment based on conclusion and information complete KM 44 + 020 - 44 + 120 After conducting the survey, the data that was gathered shows many of the defects are just the same at every road. We found out that there is lot of pavements defects along the way especially Longitudinal and Patching. Buses, public and private vehicles inflicted heavy-duty damage to their road networks, causing damage to their pavements. The nonstop current of vehicles may vary because the road was always in used. Heavy rain is also one of the causes of the damages that open drainage in this area affect the way of flood flow. CONCLUSION Based on the observations and data that have been gathered and analyzed by the surveyors in performing several studies concerning the transportation system management in Malolos, Bulacan, the surveyors therefore conclude that:
•The drivers are not well oriented when it comes to traffic rules and regulations due to lack of enforcement in the area where the surveyors conducted the study.
•The surveyors observed that one of the main problems in Malolos, Bulacanis the absence of concerned enforcers that assure the security and safety of the drivers, commuters and the pedestrians.
•The roads in Malolos, Apalit are well designed and constructed considering that it can accommodate large volume of vehicles. However, it is not properly maintained for it shows defects that indicate long period of usage.
•The intersections are noticeable to the drivers for they are not obstructed and covered by any structures and vegetation.
•There are no traffic signage, signaling devices, street lights sufficient to secure the safety of the drivers, commuters, as well as the pedestrians.
•Pavement markings, such as pedestrian lanes, center lines, etc., and reflectors are not visible in most areas in Malolos, Bulacan indicating that there is lack of maintenance
•There is no traffic furniture in the area where the surveyors conducted the study. RECOMMENDATION •There must be seminars, probably every year to orient and update the drivers, pedestrians and commuters about the traffic rules and regulations and its improvements.
•The officials of LTO must be vigilant on giving license to the licensees who are the drivers. They must assure that the applicants must know the traffic rules and regulations.
•There must be traffic enforcers assigned on the intersections particularly on the streets that have a high rate of accidents.
•Trailer trucks must be monitored whether they are overloaded or not. There must be a weighing bridge for heavy vehicles. Punishments must be observed if the drivers will not obey the rule.
•Ramps for the disabled must be constructed.
•Street lights, traffic signage, and signal devices must be located especially those intersections that have many pedestrians and vehicles.
•The pedestrian lanes and center lines must be visible and regularly maintained.
•Tricycles must have terminals so that they will not park beside the street and cause obstruction.
•Road furniture must be well maintained.
•Provide larger spaces parking areas in appropriate places so that the vehicles will not park on the shoulders or beside the road.

7.Are the pavement markings, such as pedestrian lanes, center lines, etc., and reflectors seen clearly?
8.Are the traffic furniture’s locations are at the right and safe places?
9.Are the bus stops and jeepney stops located at the right places?
10.Are the parking areas at Barasoin Church, Malolos, Bulacan enough to accommodate the total vehicles that are parking? This study focuses on the current Transportation System management (TSM) being practiced at Malolos, Bulacan. The study attempts to determine the current traffic situation, existing street infrastructures and traffic signals and devices, parking management system, the conditions of the roads, and other related problems on transportation in Imus by conducting several surveys. These surveys include: Volume Count Survey, which accumulates accurate data regarding the number and movement of different types of vehicles within or through an area or at selected intersection within an area for four hours; Pedestrian Count Survey, which determines rates of pedestrians crossing a road and pedestrian traffic volumes entering the four corners of an intersection from each direction for two hours; Parking Survey, which determines the number of vehicles that stayed at time interval of 30 minutes and the availability of the parking bays for four hours; Road Safety Audit, which evaluates the safety and the road furniture present in an intersection and midblock; Conflict survey, which determines the traffic conflicts or incidents at different intersections and midblock; Boarding and Alighting survey, which determines the number of passengers that boards and alights a bus; and Pavement Investigation Survey, which determines the different defects present on the road being surveyed. The largest numbers of vehicles passing through this intersection are the cars, while the least volume of vehicles passing through the road is trailers. These graph and number labels shows the largest number of vehicles passes by the surveyed intersections at the peak hours. Some of the time may varies because of the location and the design of the way. The table and graph show that most of the pedestrian in this part of intersection is adult with a total of 240 person passed followed by teenager with 147 then children with 96 and lastly the aged with 36 person passed. There is no PWD passed in this intersection during this period of time. The table and graph show that most of the pedestrian in this midblock is teenager with a total of 91 person passed followed by adult with 59 then children with 16 and lastly the aged with 5 person passed. There is no PWD passed in this midblock during this period of time.
