Abstract

The constructions of buildings and dwellings have long been known to increase the number of trips generated on existing road network. However, how these buildings and dwellings affect road infrastructure is not well understood. It is the purpose of this study to evaluate the impact of property development on road infrastructure as measured by road density. For this, the study looks at several types of properties – residential, governmental, industrial and commercial – together with several socio-economic indicators (e.g. household income, car ownership, etc.) to see how these variables affect road density. The analytical model used is the multiple linear regressions with road density as the dependent variable. The empirical data used in this study are property data and socio-economic data collected between 1990 and 2000 obtained from the town of Kuantan. Using the data from the town of Kuantan, the regression model was developed and calibrated. Results from analysing the prediction error with the RMSE statistics indicate that property development has significant impact on road density for the town of Kuantan.
