Storm water management criteria for Malaysia green highway

Tuan Soh, Tuan Nor Hazwani (2013) Storm water management criteria for Malaysia green highway. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Civil Engineering.



Green highway is environmentally responsible and sustainable in all aspects and it is also related to the effort to leave the project area better than before in improving safety and functionality. There are many elements to be considered in order to develop the green highway index. Storm water management is one of the important scopes to establish the green highway index. In fact, improper management on storm water for highway infrastructure will create significant problem such as flooding, surcharge and channel system blockage. As a result, it creates dangerous environment to road users when water ponding on the road surface. The environmental friendly approach should be applied when dealing with storm water runoff. Therefore, this study is focusing on storm water management towards developing the green road index. The current approach will be highlighted in this study starting from reviewing the literature, develop the questionnaire and thus distribute the designed questionnaire to the respondents. This study consists of survey and interview according to the design questionnaire related to green highway criteria. The collected data has been analyzed by using SPSS score index and statistical analysis. The finding of this study is storm water management criteria and element which contributing for new green highway development has been established. In conclusion, score point for each element criteria been determined as a guide for new highway assessment.
