Modelling the environmental adaptation of a collector road in an area of high pedestrian activity in the City of Khon Kaen

The concept of Environmental Adaptation seeks to create an environment that manages friction and impact on certain types of transport corridors. An opportunity existed to apply the concept of Environmental Adaptation to an area of high pedestrian activity at a collector road on the Khon Kaen University Campus in Thailand. It was decided to construct a distinct zone in which pedestrians could safely perform their crossing activities according to the principles of Environmental Adaptation. A before and after scenario were modelled and travel times and delays were established for both motorists and pedestrians. Extensive traffic and pedestrian surveys were conducted to provide the basis for the modelling. The microsimulation modelling was used along with artist impressions to promote the concept and conduct stakeholder consultation. This was an important step as the Environmental Adaptation concept had never been used before in this region of Thailand. This paper describes the concept and modelling concerning the implementation of the scheme. (a)
