Abstract This study reviews the current road and vehicle parking layout of Charles Darwin University (CDU) Casuarina Campus and aims to suggest measures for any changes in the design that will reduce or eliminate the points of traffic conflict. The area under the study is perceived to have minor and major issues relating to the effectiveness of its intersection design and inadequate parking space capacity.

The research involves peak-volume traffic measurements to reveal the amount of vehicles and their movements in the existing road network. This also exposes whether or not the current traffic of the network under study exceeded the practical design capacity of the system. In particular, the current intersection design and traffic calming measures are investigated to determine their effectiveness. Observation and investigation of the whole setting will show which areas need improvements in places such traffic flow management and parking allowance efficiency. The information gathered is analysed and reviewed for better planning, designing, and operating the current transport systems.

Findings, based on this study, will aim to provide recommendations for possible future modification of the CDU road layout and construction of parking facilities.
