Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,

I would like to begin my writing for this edition with a heartfelt thank you to all the participating parties. This annual report has been published since 1982 and has benefited many parties.

The National Traffic Census is a biennial programme conducted for the purpose of traffic data collection and updating current status of federal and state roads conditions around Malaysia. To-date, there are 554 stations erected around the country. The data collected from these census stations are published
annually in the Road Traffic Volume Malaysia (RTVM). This year, we have included articles relating to the development of road networks and how it is essential to development of local areas within identified economic regions in Malaysia.

Through this publication, we hope to assist and fulfil the needs of all involved in planning and building of road networks with a shared vision to constantly improve the development of road infrastructures in terms of planning, managing and cost effectiveness for each project. We appreciate any constructive reviews and suggestions regarding the publication, so we may improve the quality of its content for the benefit of all in the future.

Lastly, on behalf of Highway Planning Division, I would like to thank all involved quarters in the making of this report, especially the Public Works Department Malaysia, Malaysian Highway Authority, Road Transport Department Malaysia and other agencies’ cooperation in providing us with their support to publish RTVM 2015.
