Evaluation of a Proposed Road in a Campus Network based on Ideal Flow
A proposed road project inside a campus that will have to down trees from its mini forest have attracted different public opinion among the faculty and students. In this paper, we would like to justify our view objectively based on transportation engineering point of view. The Ideal Flow Network (IFN) method was used to do the analysis because its source code is publicly available for clarification. The network data is based on previous study of Ateneo Traffic Group report. Two scenarios were set: based scenario that represents the current road network, and two proposed scenario that represents the current road network with additional proposed road in two ways and one way respectively. Analysis of the results show that the total network travel time of the proposed scenario are increased by 4.69% and 2.32% respectively for two ways and one-way scenarios. The network speed will be slightly improved by 0.03% in when the proposed road project is added in two ways. Thus, we failed to justify that the proposed network has better network performance.
