Transportation planners often require estimates of traffic demand generated by a new development or redevelopment. Suitable estimates are limited in many Asian and small city states and overseas values are often used. However, these values are often irrelevant due to the differences in levels of vehicular ownership, land use and planning policies, public transport facilities and road network development, travel behaviour, traffic demand management policies and various other socio-economic factors. This report presents the relevance of these foreign values, for the Food Industries and Warehousing and Distribution Industries, based on a comparison to actual site counts from 16 different sites in Singapore. An amenity centre is also studied to attempt to classify this particular type of development.
