Abstract

Trip generation and trip attraction is important to the traffic engineer and planner in considering the impact of new development in our country. New development leads at various impacts to the people's daily life activities. The current boom in shopping centre constructions entails the usage of some shopping centre trip factor. The main objective of this research is to determine these rate trip generation, vehicle volume, number of pedestrian and suggestion to community to use public transport. Sogo shopping mall has 2 gates (1 and 2), in use for entering and exiting the shopping premises. Proportional vehicle volumes emanating from shopping premises at gate 1 and 2 connect directly to an access one way road. The study further recommends more sample to be gathered using the formulated survey methodology for the result. Thus trip generation manual must be compiled based on local Malaysian conditions, and the most optimal level for compilation is at national level. In addition, the existences of the Malaysian Trip generation Manual encourage uniformity in practice. Sogo is located along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Jalan Raja Laut. Trip generation depends on travel behaviour, which is turn is localized and may differ from place to place. The most typical time for shopping on the weekday is particular 12 to 2pm during lunch hour and 5 to 7pm after work on Fridays attracts the most number of customers on a weekday. In addition Saturday and Sundays are very busy periods for shopping centres having a supermarket and discount stores. It is also affect the level of trip chaining phenomenon in the estimation rate include parking not provide adequately, so congestion occurring at that shopping centre. Thus trip generation manual must be compiled based on local Malaysian conditions, and the most optimal level for compilation is at national level. In addition, the existences of the Malaysian Trip generation Manual encourage uniformity in practice.
