TTS Group Gains TIA Success in Myanmar

Posted: 22 November 2016

TTS Group is proud to gain success in Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) for Hoang Anh Gia Lai Myanmar Centre, a project introduced by Hoang Anh Gia Lai Group in Yangon’s one of the most upscale areas.

TTS Group is able to achieve this incredible milestone also because of our very strong local partner, Sun United Company Limited, who has extensive experience in designing and building for mix development with steel structure building, reinforcement concrete buildings, infrastructure developments and construction management for high rise buildings in Myanmar and Singapore.

Both TTS Group and Sun United have now worked on several Traffic Projects together, including organizing a conference together way back in July 2016. More news on the conference can be read here.
 
Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) Group is one of the leading real estate companies in Vietnam, with focus on the development of residential and commercial property in Vietnam’s principal economic centres. The company has been expanding regionally with real estate projects in Laos, Thailand and Myanmar, one of which is the Athletes’ Village for the 25th Southeast Asian Games delivered to the Government of Laos in 2009.

 

Bounded by Kabar Aye Pagoda Road and No.1 Industrial Road and within 100m walking distance to historical attraction Fushan Temple, The HAGL Myanmar Centre will comprise of Grade-A offices, retail spaces, modern apartments and a brand new hotel, aiming to redefine the business and lifestyle in New Yangon.

TTS is honoured to be entrusted and chosen by HAGL Group to conduct TIA for the project. The main objective of the study is to forecast the future traffic generated from the proposed development of The HAGL Myanmar Centre, to assess the impacts on the surrounding area and to propose mitigation measures if required.

TTS Group’s team included professional staff from both our Singapore and Vietnam Offices which include Kelvin Foo  as the Advisor and You Jin as the overall lead for all technical aspects of the project. The traffic engineers from the Vietnam Office are also involved actively in the traffic analysis and presentation of the project. The following is the project stage flow:

Stage 1 – Planning and scoping
Stage 2 – Data collection & Analysis
Stage 3 – Traffic (Vehicle and Pedestrian) demand & route choice modelling
Stage 4 – Pedestrian circulation and Vehicle mobility with access management
Stage 5 – Evaluation and validation

“We are honoured and privileged to be able to provide our services and professional opinions to this project” said You Jin, Associate Director of our consulting business based in Singapore. “We are well experienced and ready to serve such a project to a high level of quality”

We have completed the study successfully and received good feedback from HAGL Group. TTS Group is also the first international consultant to get acceptance and the pre-clearance of TIA in Yangon, with satisfaction from both client and authority.
