  3. 3. Location of the Problem Map 1: The map above shows the location of this investigation, Braemar Hill.
  4. 4. Snapshots of the Problem-Timeline of the traffic congestion on Braemar Hill from 7:15am to 7:50am on September 1st 2010 7:15am 7:20am 7:25am 7:30am 7:35am 7:40am 7:45am 7:50am
  5. 5. Total Vehicle Distribution on Braemar Hill Map 2: The map above shows the vehicle distribution on Braemar Hill during the investigation
  6. 6. Break  down  of  CISs  vehicles   28  30   Cars   Taxis   300   School  Buses  
  7. 7. Conclusion CIS’s Private Cars
  8. 8. What is the Scale ofCongestion on Braemar Hillin terms of Spatial Context and Time?
  9. 9. Scale of Congestion•  Scale of congestion worsens as time progresses•  The area of congested road increases
  10. 10. Map 3: The map above shows the congested areas on Braemar Hill during the investigation
  11. 11. Map 4: The map above shows the data collection points during the investigation
  12. 12. 0:20:10 Total Traveling Time from 0m to CIS 0:17:17Length of Travel time over 1100m 0:14:24 0:11:31 0:08:38 0:05:46 0:02:53 0:00:00 7:04:48 7:12:00 7:19:12 7:26:24 7:33:36 7:40:48 7:48:00 7:55:12 8:02:24 Car Arrival Time at 0m
  13. 13. Conclusionž  During peak hours, the congestion spreads: —  ½ way down Cloud View road, —  ¾ the way down Tin Hau Temple road, —  3/5 the way down Pak Fuk road.ž  Traveling time is multiplied 13 times during peak hours
