Traffic Studies Approval (TIA/TIS)

We review the traffic impact studies, which are of two types, Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA), which is relevant to the impact of the project strategically on the road network and main intersections, and Traffic Impact Statement (TIS), which is relevant to the Access/Egress, internal road network and parking details as per the guidelines.

An approval decision will be made regarding traffic studies based on the technical assessment; further modifications might be required for certain studies before they can be approved.
