Bintulu Urban & Regional Study: Transport Plan (Bintulu Development Authority)
This urban and regional planning study included a strategic transport planning component necessitating an existing transport condition assessment, identification of future transport needs, project prioritisation and an action plan to be incorporated into the overall planning study. The transport planning component involved:
Cebu SRP Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project: Pre-Feasibility & Business Case (SM Holdings)
This project was undertaken to assess the feasibility and provide a business case for a bus rapid transit (BRT) project linking the Cebu districts of Mandaue, Talisay and Mambaling with the South Roads Properties (SRP) development area and in particular the new SM Seaside City Mall. Due to potential future transport movements between the areas and the current heavily congested road network, a dedicated bus rapid transit system was assessed as a potential mass transport option. Study tasks included:
Greater Suva Transportation Study (Fiji Public Works Department)
This study, commissioned by the Fiji Government, was in response to increasing traffic congestion and reducing public transport usage in the greater Suva area, which extended from Lami to Nausori and included the fast-growing Nasinu corrdor. The transportation planning study provided the strategic basis for traffic and transport planning in the Greater Suva Urban Area to the year 2030 and involved transport network modelling, project prioritisation, economic analysis and concept design. The traffic and transport demands of the area outlined a revised strategic road network plan in the context of existing and future land use. Study tasks included:
