ROADWORKS

4.2

Introduction Road network is essential because it will link us to any place that we plan to travel.

Ensuring the road network functions efficiently and safely is a priority for our company; MEGA BINA.A road should be designed based on the standard code of practice to ensure the uniformity and safety of all road users such as the community, cyclists, pedestrians, and etc. Our new roads is located in a develop area where road need to be prepared and designed within the area to ensure the traffic movement is not affected. For the main intersection, there will be a signalized system between the existing main road and access road of proposed development due to the increasing traffic volume in that area. The material that will be used in this project is asphaltic concrete including the road and parking area for cars and motorcycles. For pedestrians walkway, we will use interlocking pavement or concrete segmental pavement due to the safety and environmental aspects.

4.5 ROAD DESIGN

4.4.1

Estimation and design of ADT

In order to design road, we must take into account local average daily traffic condition so that the traffic flow in the resident area can be manage to a good condition. A new traffic system needs to apply at that area to improve the existing intersection. Data on a traffic volume are very valuable in the analysis of traffic system at any roads. In this study, there are two ways of method that has been conducted to get the traffic volume at main intersection which are by doing a traffic count manually at main intersection or by using Road Traffic Volume Malaysia 2010 (RTVM 2010) to get the Average Daily Traffic (ADT).The censuses are carried out in the months of March/April and September/October from 1993 to 2010 by the respective District Public Works Department (JKR) staff, coordinated by the Highway Planning Unit (HPU).

4.4.5 Calculation
Estimation of ADT for 20 years According to Guide on Geometric Design of Road ATJ 8/86, ADT is defined as the total traffic for the year divided by 365 or the average traffic volume per day. ADT is important for many purposes such as determining annual usage as justification for proposed expenditures, or for design structural elements of road. The projected ADT is also used to designate standard of road.

By referring to the Road Traffic Volume Malaysia 2006 (RTVM 2006), we can obtain some important data to estimate ADT for designed period 20 years. For the road in Skudai area from Johor Bahru Gelang Patah (JR 201), ADT obtained for year 2006 is 56,108 vehicles. The normal growth rate obtained is 3.24% based on the annual growth rate and 16 hrs traffic volume from year 1993 to 2010 stated in RTVM 2010.

For the calculation of ADT at the end of design period (Vx), we can use the formula as follows: = V0 (1 + r )x

Vx Where: Vx V0 x

Topography and land use

The location of a road and its design are considerably influenced by the topography, physical features, and land use of the area traversed. Geometric design elements such as alignment, gradients, sight distance and cross-section are directly affected by topography and must be selected so that the road designed will reasonably fit into those natural and manmade features and economize on construction and maintenance. The topography through which the road passes can generally be divided into three groups. They are:

a)

Flat Terrain Topography condition where highway sight distances, as governed by both horizontal and vertical restrictions, are generally long or could be made to be so without construction difficulty or expertise. (G% = < 3%)

b)

Rolling Terrain Topography condition where the natural slope consistently rise above and fall below the road or street grade and where occasional steep slope offer some restrictions to normal horizontal and vertical roadway alignment. (G% =3% - 25%)

c)

Mountainous Terrain Topography condition where longitudinal and transverse changes in the elevation of the ground with respect to the road or street are abrupt and where benching and side hill excavation are frequently required to obtain acceptable horizontal and vertical alignment. (G% = > 25%)

4.6.1 DESIGN STANDARDS FOR BOTH MAJOR ROAD AND PROPOSED ROAD IN THE ZONE

In order to achieve the road design standard, the geometric design of all roads needs to be standardized for the following reasons:

a) b) c)

To provide uniformity of the roads according to their performance requirements To provide consistence, safe and reliable road facilities for movement of traffic To provide a guide for less subjective decision on road design

Road can be divided into two groups, urban area and rural area, urban area is defined as a roads within a gazette Municipality limits or township having a population of at least 1,000 where the buildings and houses are gathered and business activity is prevalent. However, any roads outside the Municipality limits are considered rural area. In urban areas, roads are divided into four categories, namely Expressway, Arterial, Collector and Local Street. In rural areas, roads are divided into five categories such as Expressway, Highway, Primary Road, Secondary Road and Minor Road. The summary of road classification is shown in the figure 1 below.

Figure 2: Summary of Road Classification The design standard can be classified into six groups for rural area (R) and also six groups for urban area (U). Each of these standards is listed below with descending order of hierarchy. a) a) b) c) d) e) Standard R6/U6 Standard R5/U5 Standard R4/U4 Standard R3/U3 Standard R2/U2 Standard R1/U1

Normally, roads which function to provide a long distance travel or heavier traffic will require a higher order of design standard for road design. Table 2.1 below show that the design standard for all the road categorized in rural and urban area.

By referring to the estimation of average daily traffic (ADT) for a period of time, the required design standard can be obtained based on classification of area (rural/urban). Since the ADT for 2010 that had been calculated for major road is 27166veh/day/lane, which is greater than 10,000 veh/day/lane and is classified as urban area, so the suitable design standard for that road is U5. U5 classify the road as Arterials and it able to penetrate and serve identifiable neighborhood. An arterial road, or is a high-capacity urban road. The primary function of an arterial road is to deliver traffic from collector roads to freeways or expressways, and between urban centers at the highest level of service possible. The proposed zone is within Iskandar Development Region Authority (IDRA) and considering the proposed zone is just next to Educity Iskandar, It is fast developing region where in future, it is expected to facilitate more than 100,000 residents. This proposed site will be treated as Urban Area. On the other hand, the road inside the

No. 2, Jalan Kebudayaan 7, Taman University, 81320 Johor Bahru Johor

proposed zone is being classified as R4 based on its estimated maximum flow which is 4766 veh/day/lane. R4 is known as Secondary Road and it provides medium geometric standard for the road. Secondary road constitute the major roads forming the basic network of the road transportation system within a district or regional development areas. They serve intermediate trip lengths with partial access control. They usually link up the major towns within the district or regional development areas.

4.6.2 ESTIMATION NUMBER OF LANES FOR BOTH MAJOR ROAD AND PROPOSED ROAD IN THE ZONE

Road Cross Section

For this project, the ROW was required to be design is 24m, 12m, and 9m width as shown in site plan. The 24m width with two lane dual carriageway 3.5m width

each lane, 2.0m median, future road reserve on both side and a min of 3.5 m utility corridor on both sides of the main artery. Design speed limit for the main artery road is assumed as 90 km/hr. For all internal roads the width stated in the drawing is inclusive of the width of utility corridor / pedestrian walkway on both sides of the road. We also would like to proposed signalize road intersection that will link the existing road with double lane road(24m) that will be the access road from the existing road to the residential area and from 24m width dual carriageway to the housing region.For the purpose of the calculation, the formula that will be used in order to obtain a relevant number of lanes corresponding to each of the roads is as follow:
N V C Sf Cj fp fw

Where: N Sf v/c Cj fp = Number of lanes = Service flow (veh/hr) = Volume / Capacity ratio = Capacity under idea condition (pcu/hr) = Driver population factor =1.0 fw = Road width factor = 1.0

No. 2, Jalan Kebudayaan 7, Taman University, 81320 Johor Bahru Johor

Level of Service is a qualitative measure of the effect of a number of factors, which include speed and travel time, traffic interruption, freedom to manoeuver, safety, driving comfort and convenience and operating costs. For the information, Level of Service is always been used in the capacity analysis and design of roads.

The selection of the design level of service are based on the road category. This level of service concept can be simplified into volume to capacity ratio (v/c). In this project, the roads are considered as Collector and also Secondary Road. Normally, Collector and Secondary type of road will correspond in the Level of service type D.

4.6.3

STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF PAVEMENT


ELEMENTS OF A FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT STRUCTURE

A flexible pavement is a structure composed of several layers of material placed on a subgrade each of which receives the loads from the above layer, spreads and distribute them out, then pass them on to the layer below. The further down in the pavement structure a particular layer is, the less load it will carry. The aim is to ensure that the transmitted stresses are sufficiently reduced and do not exceed the capacity of the underlying subgrade.

Material layers are usually arranged within a pavement structure in order of descending load bearing capacity with the highest load bearing capacity material on the top and the lowest load bearing capacity material on the bottom. A typical flexible pavement structure consists of: a) Surface course: This top structural layer usually consists of two layers which are Wearing Course at the top and Binder Course at the bottom. Wearing course is the layer in contact with the traffic loads. It provides a uniform running surface with characteristics such as skid resistance, smoothness and deformation resistance. This wearing course is usually impervious to prevent entrance of surface water into the pavement. The binder course provides a smooth platform onto which the wearing course is constructed. It not only contributes to the riding quality of the pavement but also to the structural strength of the pavement.

b)

Road base: The main structural layer lies immediately beneath the surface course. Its purpose is to distribute traffic loads so that the stresses transmitted onto are within the capacity of the lower layers. Road base are usually the thickest layer in the pavement and constructed out of crushed aggregate, cement stabilized or HMA Premix.

No. 2, Jalan Kebudayaan 7, Taman University, 81320 Johor Bahru Johor

c)

Sub-base: This is the layer between the road base and subgrade. It functions as a load distributing layer, minimizing the intrusion of fines from the subgrade into the pavement structure and improve drainage. The materials are usually crushed aggregate of a lower quality than the road base but better than subgrade soils. The overall thickness of the pavement and the individual layers depends on the

traffic load to be carried, climate, mechanical properties of the material in the layers and the subgrade strength.

For this project, by referred to the Table 3.1, the design standard of the major road is U5, so the road type is either Asphaltic Concrete or Concrete. Hence, we decided to use Asphaltic Concrete road as our design. On the other hand, the pavement for the roads inside the proposed zone is being designed according guidelines given by MPJBT.

DESIGN SPEED

Speed is a primary factor in all modes of transportation and is an important factor in the geometric design of roads. The speed of vehicles on a road depends to the capabilities of the drivers and their vehicles, upon general conditions such as the physical characteristics of the highway, the weather, the presence of other vehicles and the legal speed limitations.

Design speed is defined as a maximum safe speed selected to establish specific minimum geometric design elements for a particular section of highway. The choice of design speed is influenced primary by factors such as the design standard, category of road and the type of the terrain of the roads. Table below shows the design speed for rural and urban roads. Table 2.3: Design Speed for the Rural Road

No. 2, Jalan Kebudayaan 7, Taman University, 81320 Johor Bahru Johor

Tab le 2.4: Design Speed for the Urban Road

From the table above, the design speed of the main road in this project is 80 km/hr through the assumption that the area is Type I while for the roads in the proposed zone are 90 km/hr. However, for the purpose of safety, we decide that the design speed of 90 km/hr is being reduced to 50 km/hr.

HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL ALIGNMENT

4.8.1 HORIZONTAL ALIGNMENT

In the design of horizontal curves, it is necessary to establish the proper relation between the design speed and curvature and also their joint relations with super elevation (e) and side friction (f). There are two types of curves that being considered which are Circular Curve and Transition/Spiral Curve. The combination of circular and spiral curve can give the best design of horizontal alignment with the certain design speed.

CIRCULAR CURVE

The minimum radius is a limiting value of curvature for a given speed and is determined from the maximum rate of superelevation and the maximum allowable side friction factor. The minimum safe radius (Rmin) can be calculated from the standard curve formula.
R V2 127 e f

Where: R min = minimum radius of circular curve (m) V e = Design speed (kph) = Maximum superelevation rate = 0.1 for roads at rural area = 0.06 for roads at urban area f = Maximum allowable side friction factor

The length of the circular,Lc curve can be determined with using the equation below:
LC R 2na 360

Where: R A = Minimum radius = Angle of circular curve

TRANSITION / SPIRAL CURVE

Vehicles follow a transition path as it enters or leave a circular horizontal curve. To design a road with built-in safety, the alignment should be such that a driver traveling at the design speed will not only find it possible to confine his vehicle to the occupied lane but will be encouraged to do so. Spiral transition curve are used for this purpose. The degree of curve varies from zero at the tangent end of the spiral to the degree of the circular arc at the circular curve end. The length of spiral, Ls can be calculated from the equation below: Ls = v3 [ 1 R.g.e / v2 ] cR Where: v c = Speed (m/s) = rate of increase of centripetal accelerating (m/s3) = 1 to 3 (m/s3) R g e = Radius = Gravity acceleration (m/s2) = super elevation rate

4.8.2 VERTICAL ALIGNMENT


INTRODUCTION

Vertical curve are used to effect a gradual change between tangent grades. They should be simple in application and should result in a design that is safe, comfortable in operation, pleasing in appearance and adequate for drainage. For the simplicity, the parabolic curve with an equivalent vertical axis centered on the vertical point of intersection is used.

The design calculations in this particular chapter of vertical curve were based on the engineering surveying method. There are two types of vertical curve which are crest curve and sag curve. Crest curve is the grades meeting at summits whereas sag curve is the grades meeting at valleys. Also, grades are represented in terms of ratio or percentages. Rising grades are known as +ve and those descending as ve.

In vertical curve design, calculations are based on the algebraic difference between gradients. In addition, the type of curve usually used is the parabola because a parabola has a uniform rate of change of gradients from the geometric point of view. Thus, yielding a uniform rate of vertical radial force.

4.9 JUNCTION

INTRODUCTION

Road intersections whether at grade or grade separated are an important component of a road system. It is through these points that the motorists and other road users gain access to the road network. Generally the capacity of major intersections controls the volume of traffic within the system. These intersections also represent the points of conflict in the road networks as the traffic stream will cross, merge, diverge and weave at these locations. Proper design for these intersections will greatly enhance the safety of the road users and improve the capacity of the system.

For high speed expressway, grade separated interchanges are used to control access where mobility is of greater importance. However for lower standard roads in rural and urban area where accessibility is more important, at-grade intersections are used. The common types of at grade and grade separated intersections are:

a) b) c) d) e) f) g) h) i)

T-Junction, Y-Junction, Staggered Junction, Cross Junction, Roundabout, Trumpet Interchange, Diamond Interchange, Cloverleaf Interchange, and Directional Interchange.

No. 2, Jalan Kebudayaan 7, Taman University, 81320 Johor Bahru Johor

Intersections at grade present a driver with several points of conflict with other vehicles. The aims of intersection design are to improve traffic flow and reduce the likelihood of accidents. This is achieved by controlling vehicle maneuvers and reducing the number of points of conflict. The principal factors influencing the design of an intersection are: a) b) c) d) Traffic volume and characteristics, Topography and environment, Economic considerations, and Human factors.

Safety is a prime consideration in any intersection design. Safe intersection design is based on the following principles: a) b) c) d) e) f) g) Reduction of the number of points of conflict, Minimising the area of conflict, Separation of points of conflict, Giving preference to major movements, Control of speed, Provision of refuge areas, traffic control devices and adequate capacity, and Definition of paths to be followed.

The objective of intersection design is to reduce the severity of potential conflicts between vehicle while providing maximum convenience and ease of movement to vehicles. Four basic elements are generally considered in the design at-grade intersection which are: a) b) Human factors such as driving habits and decision and reaction time. Traffic considerations such as capacities and turning movements, vehicle speeds and size and distribution of vehicles. c) Physical elements such as characteristic and use of abutting property, sight distance and geometric features. d) Economics factors such as cost and benefits and energy consumption.

CONCLUSION
As a conclusion, all the calculations done are meeting the standard requirement. From the computation of 20 years design life, the 2 lanes used in this design can provide a smooth journey for the road user. Besides that, the designed road had shown that the horizontal and vertical curves are computed to give an ease movement to the vehicles. Finally, the intersection suggested determines that it can reduce the severity of potential conflicts between vehicles, at the same time, it provides a convenience for the road user. Overall, it can be said that this designed road has fulfilled the important criteria in term of cost, safety, and quality.
