dc.description.abstract This Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) was commissioned in March 1998 as a supporting document to an application for the rezoning of an ert in Noordhoek from general housing to commercial use. The proposal at the time was to develop a medium·sized 15 000 m2 GLA shopping centre with supporting offices and a Health & Racquet Club. All the work (including managing the traffic counting team) was carried out by myself under the guidance of Dr Piet Jordaan at Gibb Africa Consulting Engineers. As financial backing and anchor tenants were secured for the development, the size of the proposed shopping centre was increased from a local facilily to a regional facilily of 31 000 m2 GFA to be developed in two phases. This necessitated a complete revision of the approach and content of the TIA. Owing to the regional nature of the new development, the TIA was expanded to include a wider geographical area of influence and a longer development period. This revised TIA was carried out by myself between September 1998 and March 1999 under the guidance of Dr Herman Joubert. Longbeach Mall opened for business in April 2001 complete with upgraded road network as recommended in the TIA The TIA is submitted as the final-year project for my Master's Degree in Traffic & Transportation Engineering. For the purposes of completion, an after·study of current traffic conditions on the local road infrastructure has also been included. The after·study was carried out in October 2001 (6 months after Longbeach Mall opened) and includes traffic counts at critical intersections during the Saturday morning peak period, observations of parking area utilisation, observations of shopping centre occupancy and discussions of the possible reasons for differences between predicted and actual traffic volumes. Confirmation that the study is original and was carried out by myself and permission from Arcus Gibb (Ply) Ltd to use the study as part of my final-year project, is provided in Appendix A. en_ZA
